File Shredder is an advanced data security tool for Windows which allows you to completely remove unwanted files and sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it several times with US Dod 5220.22-M erasure method.

With File Shredder you can securely delete files and documents from your hard drive without fearing that they could be recovered sometime. There are quite a few software tools today for retrieval of deleted files under Windows OS. Those tools, often referred to as “file recovery” software, are taking advantage of shortcoming of Windows “delete” command that we all use regularly to delete files. Actually, the “delete” operation in Windows only removes bits of information from files so they appear have been deleted in the OS. It is easy to retrieve those files using aforementioned specialized file recovery software.

In order to remove, or shred files permanently from your system you have to use a program that is capable of rewriting the files with random series of binary data multiple times, and this process is often called shredding. That way, the actual content of the file has been overwritten and the possibilities to recover such a shredded file are mostly theoretically feasible.
