File Shredder is a utility that allows you to permanently delete any information from your hard drive. It will not be possible to restore it even with the help of special software. Among its analogues, this application has small requirements for system resources and ease of use. You can launch the utility by using the context menu, which can be called by right-clicking on any file or folder.

The principle of deletion is simple - the program first overwrites the file and then writes random sequences of zeros and units over the memory cells in which it was located. You can set the number of such records yourself. The more times the random sequences are written over the released cells, the more likely it is that the deleted files will not be recovered. In general, decide what is more important to you - the rate of rubbing or its reliability.

- the function of fast and thorough erasure of information;

- selecting one of the five levels of data removal reliability;

- Automatic integration of the utility into Windows Explorer;

- support for deleting by simply dragging and dropping files and folders into the program window;

- Automatically check for updates at startup;

- clearing the system of unnecessary information;

- simple and intuitive user interface.

I keep private files on my hard drive forever. When I finally do get around to deleting them, I am still constantly worried someone will be able to hack into my computer and access them. I installed File Shredder, which was simple to do, and it took care of all my private files. I'm not the best when it comes to computers so I like knowing that this program is taking care of my private documents and destroying them once I am finished with them.
