Moo0 File Shredder

By Moo0 Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Jul 30, 2011

Moo0 FileShredder can erase files on your Windows PC using one of four algorithms, until they are completely unrecoverable. Most PC users have probably heard that the Recycle Bin doesn't really delete files, at least not right away, and even long-deleted files can be recovered from your hard disk, if you rely on Windows to follow through when you tell it to delete something. "Delete" should mean "outta here," not "Level 1 Wipe."

FileShredder's "Drop Box" interface is a small dialog that we could drag around the desktop as well as resize by grabbing and dragging its corners. Its View menu offers various check box options like Keep on Top and Easy Drag, and we could select from a huge list of languages as well as translate more from the Language menu. Other than that, there's just the Drop Box and the Method selector. The software's Web page offered plenty of assistance, but FileShredder explains itself very clearly indeed in the Method list's four levels: Shred Once (Normally Unrecoverable); Extra Carefully (Even More Secure); Into Ashes (Extremely Secure); and Vaporize (Vanish It!). The software also offers a Detailed Description interface with more data on each algorithm.

How does it work? Just great, even with folders too large for the Recycle Bin to swallow. Should you care if your deleted files are recoverable? Well, do you care if people sift through your trash for bank statements and other highly personal stuff? It's just plain common sense. If you think you might need something later or don't care how long it hangs around, throw it in the Recycle Bin; that's why it's called the "Recycle Bin," not "The Incinerator." If you want it gone from your system, set FileShredder to max level and take out the trash.
