Many people are interested in protecting their computer's security. Even deleted files are not safe from prowling criminals, looking for important information. Blancco - File Shredder claims to have a sure-fire way to protect your deleted material.

This program operates on a simple premise and should be easy for all users to handle. Even though the program throws around calculus terms like "algorithm," it does a fantastic job of breaking down the key components of its security and making deletion simple for all.

Users are greeted by a menu asking whether they wish to shred files, folders, system files, the Recycle Bin, and even free disc space that may still contain sensitive information. Each option comes with a definition, so inexperienced users can be confident they are shredding the right files. The actual process of shredding is simple: users just browse and click on the files they want erased and the job is done.

While Blancco - File Shredder is fairly simple, it does come with a few customizations. There is a long list of algorithm choices for deleting files, each with a brief explanation about what makes it different. Users can also customize the update schedule or even shred the log of actions, erasing every trace of the work. Users looking to bulk up their security will not be disappointed with this shredding program.
