BitKiller Editor's Review

Dealing with various types of data efficiently holds the key to success in any computing task. Apart from generating new data and modifying existing files, it becomes necessary to delete existing files at times. While most users resort to using shift and delete keys combination, this may not be enough. Actually when you empty recycle bin, the data still remains on the disk. Until it gets erased by fresh data, this can be retrieved by using specialized recovery apps. So, you should resort to shredding software to eliminate sensitive data beyond recovery. The nice thing is, you need not pay anything to shred data safely.  BitKiller is one handy data shredder app you may use.

This app runs on PCs with Windows XP and later versions. It is portable and so you will not need to install it. Running it off an USB drive is actually convenient. There is no licensing and you can use it on many computers without issues.

The UI of the app is very simple and minimal. This makes things easy for beginners. In fact, there are not many settings to tinker with. You just need to add files that need to be shredded and pick a shredding method. Then the app performs the needful. The shredding time is dependent on a method you select.

As a matter of fact, BitKiller offers you a number of tried and tested shredding algorithms and they can ensure your data will be erased off completely. There are shredding methods like DoDstandards as well as Peter Gutmann’s sanitization. The latter is quite time consuming. If you want faster deletion of data opt for random data overwrite method. In reality, using the fastest shredding method produces decent results.

While deleting large amounts of data, the app may seem like it has become unresponsive but actually there is no such thing. Inclusion of a progress bar would be better.BitKiller is not resource hungry and runs fine even on older computers very well.

Positive Points:
•    Freeware, simple UI.
•    No installation needed.
•    Useful, effective shredding methods.
•    Not heavy on resources.

Negative Points:
•    No progress bar.

Conclusion:
BitKiller is a simple but handy data shredding tool that can fit needs of both casual and seasoned users. It is portable and using the app on a number of computers is simple. The UI is simple and even a novice can understand the methods. The included shredding methods are adequate for even the most security conscious users. While the absence of a progress bar may make demanding users grudge a little, this is actually no deal breaker. Given the fact that it comes for free and offers great performance there is no reason not to try this app.
