File Shredder

Assalamu-alaikum and greetings:

Deleting a file with Windows or with other programs will leave the file contents on your hard disk, easy to be recovered by anyone that has access to your computer.

East-Tec File Shredder securely destroys (shreds) sensitive and private files beyond recovery by writting over them randmom binary text.

Simply drag and drop files to the shredder icon on your desktop, or select the files you want to destroy directly from the Windows Explorer right-click menu. Your sensitive files will be gone for good and nobody will be able to recover your valuable corporate trade secrets, business plans, personal files, photos or confidential letters.

East-Tec File Shredder overwrites and verifies the destruction of every bit of the file, making recovery impossible.

You can download directly from:

http://www.softforall.com/Utilities/...0_download.htm

It's freeware. For extra security I'd encrypt the files before shredding.

Ma'a-salaama,

Assalamu-alaikum and greetings:

Further to my previous post read:

Keep in mind the following:

When you 'delete' the file, you may think the data is gone. Not quite, when you delete a file, the operating system does not really remove the file from the disk; it only removes the reference of the file from the file system table.

The file remains on the disk until another file is created over it, and even after that, it might be possible to recover data by studying the magnetic fields on the disk platter surface.

Before the file is overwritten, anyone can easily retrieve it with a disk maintenance or an undelete utility.

Ma'a-salaama,

Try One Click Privacy. It contains a powerful File Shredder with some good options to overwrite the files so that they can't be recovered by anyone.
