Editor's Review

Softpedia - 5 Ratings
It provides three ways to zap the unwanted data until they are completely unrecoverable: overwrite with pseudorandom data, delete with DoD5220.22-M and delete with Gutmann method. We tried to recover the deleted files with some professional tools yet none of them was restored. Reliable file shredder software.
