Aren't you askig the wrong list?

The filesystem is vfat, files are being deleted from within Linux using Linux tools and the partition just happens to be a Windows installation* but could be any generic storage device. So, no.

I presume you are implying that I ask on a Windows list. Please correct me if I am wrong. If I am not, it would be the wrong list to ask about using dd to delete files, unless dd is developed, or at least also being supported, by MS.
