Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have just downloaded, installed and used SecretShredder with no trouble at all, perhaps the problems have been ironed out now? I also sent a mail to mizog and had a reply within a day or so - actually the support was good.

Pros

none

Cons

After I purchased the software, the file will not unzip correctly and will not run. Over a month, I sent 3 emails to the company requesting help; there has been no reply. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY.

I purchased the program, then had problems unzipping the file and getting itstarted. I sent several polite emails asking the company to help. I never got a reply. Don't throw money into this black hole.

"Worth the price"

August 09, 2005  |  By trgilman

 |  Version: SecretShredder 0.4.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've been using the the full version for about 3 months. The program is very easy to navigate, and albeit slow, it does shred files, and cleans out Safari nicely.
It is worth the price right now, and will be a real bargain one other browsers are supported (Firefox next please).

"Best Mac shredder I've found overall"

April 23, 2005  |  By dave1974

 |  Version: SecretShredder 0.4.2

Pros

I use shreddit in work on my PC but have secretshredder at home on my iMac. Overall I prefer secretshredder as it seems simpler to use than shreddit. The thing I really find useful is that when I close Safari it automatically pops up and offers to shred my temporary internet files. If you share your mac with other friends/family then this can be a good idea. The file shredding was free in the trial version but I had to register to get the browser and disk shredding, which IMO are the best features. Another good thing is that this program is a really small download (only 250K or something) compared to the others which are a couple of MBs.

Cons

I think they could have made better shredder icon for the dock, but no other issues.

"Nice"

Summary

I like this app. It is easy to use and good value.
Just one small gripe - the only browser supported is Safari. Apparently they are working on others and when they do, I would give this app a 5.

"Amazing support!"

May 21, 2004  |  By outer

 |  Version: SecretShredder 0.4.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Without taking my HD to a forensic laboratory I can't say how well this software actually lives up to its claims... but I trust it nonetheless. Largely because the developer is so agile when it comes to addressing bug reports. I have no reason to suspect that SS is not doing what it claims; I simply have no easy way of demonstrating to my paranoid satisfaction that it is.

This is not damning through faint praise, however. This is to my mind the best designed piece of secure erasure software currently available for Mac OS X (10.3.3). Again, I have no assurance that it's the best engineered, but it works for me.
