File Shredder Editor's Review

More and more people these days are using their computers to work with sensitive information. A prime example of sensitive information which has gone electronic could be bank statements and other financial records, and unauthorized access to these kinds of documents could be devastating of the owner. Therefore, it is especially important that you securely remove such data from your hard drive as soon as you don’t need it anymore, and properly wipe out your hard drive before giving away or selling your computer. This will help limit and prevent unauthorized access to your sensitive data in situations out of your control.

File Shredder can securely wipe files, folders, entire partitions, or just free space on a partition. It is very easy to get used to. Down the left hand side of the main window are all the options available to you. If you want to just shred an individual file, simply click Add File(s) and navigate to what you want to remove. Similarly, navigate to the appropriate folder or directly using the Add Folder option, if you want to. Each and every entry you select for secure wiping will be listed in the large white area in the center of the application, including its file name, type, path, and size. Click Shred Files Now at the bottom of the window if you are ready to go, and follow the procedure until your data is securely removed.

If you are looking to securely shred the free space on your hard drive, simply select this option from the left hand side. File Shredder will open a new dedicated free space wiping window, from which you need to check the drive or drives with the free space you want to shred. You also should then select the algorithm you wish File Shredder to use, using the drop down menu at the bottom.

File Shredder automatically integrates with the shell by default, for quick and easy file shredding, which can be disabled in the settings. You can also change the secure algorithm used when shredding files and folders, each in turn taking longer than the last, but removing data more securely than the last, also.

I like File Shredder - it seems to be a very small, effective, and free way to help securely remove your data from your hard drive. Overall, I would rate it 4/5.
