Wipe vs Shred vs Delete vs Erase

Do you know the difference of these 4 terms: wipe, shred, delete, and erase?
Below is a simple explanation.
Delete:  When you delete a file, you don't erase it, you just make it hard to find.
But you can use data recovery tool to find it, for example, Wise Data Recovery can help you recover deleted files/images/videos/music....
