Editors' Review

File deletion ought to be painless, and with XL Delete it mostly is. The drag-and-drop interface makes it easy to select files and folders for elimination. From there, you get 12 preset deletion options, including the simple, fast, and fairly insecure Random method and the powerful 35-pass Gutmann. If you know what you're doing, you even can create your own custom deletion algorithm. In our tests, using the Gutmann method XL Delete erased a 1GB file in about 20 minutes. Additional features include a task scheduler, a Free Space Wipe option, and the ability to clean IE and Firefox traces. The program also comes with a well-written help file and a step-by-step wizard for neophytes. Overall, XL Delete ought to satisfy home- or small-office users who just need the digital equivalent of a file shredder.
