[Box Backup] Removing backup locations from the store

Hi Chris,

1) Does waiting 48 hours actually physically delete the files from the
server, or does it just mark them as deleted?  I thought files marked
as deleted just stay there until needed to make room under the soft

2) How _are_ the files deleted on the server anyway?  Is it a simple
rm, or is it a shred?  (Since we don't trust the server, maybe it
doesn't matter...)

3) Have you ever thought about making a java gui?  I played around
with the eclipse and netbeans IDEs a few weeks back, and they look
like they have a lot of potential, especially netbeans as I recall.
