TZ Data Shredder review
This right software doesn't stand out like something extraordinary, but
seems to be a nice one.
This program helps you shred important files and folders so that they can't
be restored and prevent attempts to recover sensitive deleted files from
your hard drive by data recovery or forensic software. Again, the folders
and files are supposed to be shredded manually by picking the required data
via browsing the system.
The only automatic feature of the program is to shred the recycle bin. But
it can't even shred temporary files and cookies and stuff like that unless
you search for that data yourself.
Although it can shred disk free space so you can even use shredder to destroy
previously deleted files on your hard drive. But that means formatting all
your data, of course.
It also includes a scheduler and integrates with Windows explorer for right
click shred, but many analogous utilities do just the same. Anyway the
scheduler is not available in the trial version of the software, so I didn't
have a chance of checking it out.
The program has just a few options. Mostly, it is not configurable.
There are no choice of shredding methods which other programs usually offer.
Utility only allows users to to change the number of overwriting passes.
Still, it the program is easy to use and any user level can get acquainted
with it fairly fast.
Concerning the users' feedback, I have to mention that one competent user
said the software contained spyware: the Trojan-Spy.
Program can be purchased for $15 at www.trackzapper.com.
Probably it is an adequate price but overall this program is not capable of
keeping all your sensitive data away from the possible intruders.
