A computer truly remembers its information in its storage, which is nearly always composed of one or more hard drive disks.when something gets deleted, it is not necessarily completely wiped out. it is just removed, in a sense. they only way to get the information deleted off of it is to write over it. data is stored on the platter of a hard drive. data is stored all around the platter in all locations. when its deleted it is just erased from the platter.
