Hey there, manzsher.

For specific files and/or folders, this can only be done with the help of 3rd party software. Search the web for software, which permanently erases files. I'm sure that quite a few options will pop-up.

On the other hand, if at some point you decide you want to do that with the entire drive for example, you should go for a low level format (a.k.a. Write Zeros). This basically writes a "blank" (or a 0 on each sector of the drive) thus making it impossible to recover any of the data that was there. You can either do that by using DISKPART or a 3rd party program (most of the HDD diagnostic tools have the option for low level format).

Hope that helps.
