Using the Custom Remote Wipe for Computers
Wipe with no Boundaries
If you are a Prey PRO user, you have access to the Data Protection features (Remote Wipe & File Retrieval). The first one of these two has a new configuration that allows users to delete specific folders and files by manually entering the directory. This is available only when wiping computers or laptops (Windows, macOS, Ubuntu)
Where to Begin:
Log into your Prey account through the panel, and open one of your computers in the device tab, if you look at the right-hand action sidebar you'll find the Wipe Data feature. Give it a click!
Type in the Directories
Step one is to tell
Prey can only delete directories nested at least 3 levels deep, which prevents you from accidentally wiping your operating system. For custom Wipe, always pass a path like this:
Prey won't be able to delete the core system files, so avoid directories such as C:\Windows, etc.
Enter Password and Execute!
Awesome! The last step is to enter your password and click confirm to execute the action.
