Developer's Description

Delete files and folders with no recovery option.

Alternate File Shredder is an application that allows you to finally delete files and/or folders (no recovery possible).

The program also can overwrite the free space on a drive, which means, that already deleted files cannot be restored, too. Alternate File Shredder allows you to delete files and/or folders finally, which means they cannot be restored by recovery software. This is realized in that way, that before the file is deleted, its content will be overwritten with a random content or zero-values several times. The result of this is, that recovery software may restore the file with its size, but the content is changed - so the file gets useless. Maybe you already deleted some files, which you better like to be shred. Here the program offers the possibility to shred the free disk space of a drive. This is realized by writing data into the whole free disk space and delete it afterwards. This is necessary to make sure, that all existing file fragments are overwritten.
