File Shredder

by juviminor / March 3, 2006 2:50 AM PST

I tried to download a file shredder but it wasn't working. So I went out to thier forum and the reply was that he was no longer interested in the program and was working on " other projects". Are there any utilities that don't require a 200 IQ or will make me part of the nal't debt that can shred/erase? Plz,Plz,Plz don't include scar5.com.

Just a few hours ago in http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6122-0.html?forumID=44&threadID=160807&messageID=1784924 I recommended Powerdesk (5.0 or 6.0, with links for both) for a totally different purpose: running a file finder as a program.

And this wonderful FREE program also has a file shredder built in (called File>Destroy, can't miss). It's up to you to see if you need the additional power of the paid Pro version for other purposes.

I see no need at all to pay for a file shredder. And no need at all for a separate one if it comes integrated in a better version of Windows Explorer.

Highly recommended.
