Editors' Review

If you're looking for a reliable utility for utterly erasing files from your hard drive, you'll be pleased with File Shredder's performance. This free tool's attractive interface is designed for ease of use, and even novices will comprehend its functions right off the bat.

A list of simple commands (such as Add File[s] and Add Folder[s]) let you browse and choose the items you wish to remove; selected items are listed in the large pane that makes up the bulk of the interface. In our tests, configuring File Shredder's settings was simple, and we were able to choose from five options for shredding algorithms, ranging from simple one pass to DoD 5220-22.M to Guttman algorithm with 35 passes.

The utility performed its tasks quickly, and we were unable to detect any remains of the shredded files afterward. While shredders with more bells and whistles are available for businesses with critical security concerns, we recommend this utility for any level of user who needs a simple file eraser for files with low-level security risks.
