AbsoluteShield File Shredder
Once again, 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 in your hard disk, there
are many tools available which can let others easily recover your sensitive
files even you format your hard disk.
I can't say this very shredder is an outstanding and breakthrough one, but
it has a nice feature besides all the regular ones: it is capable of
shredding the entire folders.
Besides that, the tool is quite ordinary. The shredding is as usual supposed
to be made by user's manual file selection. AbsoluteShield offers only two
shredding methods: Quick (2 passes) and Standart (7 passes)
The issue the features are ordinary and all the files are supposed to be
selected by hand. Suppose, you want to delete the recent files different
programs create or the
temporary internet files. This will take quite a time!
This is probably why the tool is a freeware. You can download this File
Shredder for free. Anyway, the good things are not those we get for free.
This software will steal lots of your time and nerves.
