The easiest way to permanently and securely erase files from your computer, usb, and network shares. Simply drag 'n' drop files, folder, or entire drives and File Shredder gets on with the job. It's become easy to recover deleted files; you may think you've deleted a file in Windows, but for performance, Windows only removes the index, it simply forgets the file exists. That allows file recovery tools, including the Windows built-in tools, to easy search the computer for deleted files and recover them. File Shredder overwrites the data the file originally held, then cleans the metadata (file creation times etc.), and then deletes the file. This ensures file recovery tool cannot recover the original data or fingerprint.
