Editors' review

This freeware creates a secure directory under your My Documents folder to encrypt and delete items placed in it. sdFolder doesn't have an interface as such, but opens a series of informative dialog boxes as files are deleted. The dialog boxes open only if the user chooses to watch deletion step-by-step. Each dialog box contains step explanations, warnings, and buttons for the user to choose to continue or stop.

Our testers found the program simple to use, if not always efficient. The Secure Deletion directory may be placed only under the My Documents folder. Move it and the program creates another directory in My Documents. Adding a file to the folder is supposed to automatically start the deletion process. However, some smaller files apparently didn't register, and our testers found they sometimes had to manually execute the program to start deletion. When it does work, the files are encrypted before deletion to hinder restoration.

sdFolder's process seems simple enough, but doesn't always simply work. This freeware program is small and takes up few resources. We can easily recommend it to any level user, but some may find it isn't handy enough for repeated use.
