I have to say the winner of the best name for a software developer goes to Moo0. However their small free File Shredder is very good, it gives you a drag and drop GUI as well as a few forms of file shredding algorithm’s that you choose from the dropdown list.
- Shred Once – just a quick one pass random method
- Extra Carefully – This is a 3 pass US DOD 5220.22-M method
- Into Ashes – This is a 7 pass US DOD 5220.22-M method
- Vaporise – This is a 35 pass Gutmann method
Depending on the method you choose depends on how long it will take to securely file shred your files, choose a Shred Once and its virtually over and done with, but less secure, for maximum security of erasing important data files a Into Ashes (7 Pass) or Vaporise (35 pass) is needed, but this may take considerable time, depending on the amount of files you want erasing/shredding.
Once you have chosen your method all that is needed if for you to drag and drop your files into the Drop Box area, DO be warned that dropping the files into the box activates the application and these files are shredded immediately, so I would advise clicking View and Ask Confirmation as a safety option.
