CHAOS Shredder Editor's Review

Protecting yourself and your files is becoming more and more important these days. People use their computers and laptops for many different reasons, and it’s becoming more and more common to use them to manage and work with your sensitive and personal data. For this reason, its very important to make sure that data you delete is properly removed, therefore is inaccessible to those without proper authorisation should you lose, sell or donate your system. To achieve this, you can use an application such as Chaos Shredder. Chaos Shredder wipes data from your hard drive using methods that exceed the US Department of Defence standards.

Chaos Shredder is in fact incredibly easy to use. It has a very simple and clean user interface. Down the left hand side of the window is a file tree, and by using this you can access all the different files and folders stored on your partitions and hard drives. Click on the directory containing the data you want to remove, and then drag the items into the empty white space on the right hand side of the window. Repeat this process until all the files you want to be securely deleted are on the right hand side section of the window.

You have a few options in terms of removing your data. You can change the amount of passes used when deleting files, and this can be changed by using the Passes drop down menu at the top the window. Each increased level of passes increases the amount of security used to remove your data, but also slows down the process. By default, three passes is selected, but you can choose up to nine for a thorough removal of the selected files and folders.

Once you’re ready to go, you can click the Erase button at the top of the window. Your data will then be securely removed beyond recovery.

Overall, Chaos Shredder seems to be a very easy to use and simple tool to securely remove data you no longer want on your hard drive.  I like that Chaos Shredder differs from many other shredders, because it doesn’t contain other tools and features that deter away from the main point of the application, and can become confusing to the user. Chaos Shredder simply did as I expected it to, with limited confusion and effort. Therefore, I would rate it 4/5.





CHAOS Shredder Publisher's Description

Windows does not physically remove deleted files from your hard disk. Emptying your Recycle Bin does NOT protect you at all. Your sensitive files can be recovered, even after you format your hard disk! When you delete a file from Windows, Windows just mark the file as deleted in file allocation table, but the data of the file is still on your hard disk, there are many tools available which can let others easily recover your sensitive files even after you have formated the hard disk.
Sensitive data can easily fall into the wrong hands. And because Windows is not capable of deleting information beyond recovery, you are at risk! Passwords, financial documents, even those "about last night" e-mails are fair game for the IT professionals, computer technicians or hackers. CHAOS Shredder allows you to purge, wipe and erase data with methods that far exceed US Department of Defense standards for file deletion (DOD 5220.22).

Free download from Shareware Connection - CHAOS Shredder will completely erase files from your disk, without the possibility to recover it by any practical software or hardware methods.
