Do you know that when you delete files in Windows, you will still be able to recover it even if you delete it permanently? The deleted files in Windows can be recovered by many free and paid tools available for Windows. But there are also tools which allow you to permanently delete files without being able to recover it again.
Folder Shredder is a free tool for Windows which allows you to permanently delete any sensitive digital information from your computer such as documents, music, videos, photos, software and more.
The application is portable and does not require any installation. The interface is also quite simple and you just need to select the folder or file and then click the Start Shredding button. It does the job of deleting all the files and folders permanently from you PC. FolderShredder uses the best method to make it impossible to recover deleted files: Overwrite over and over on alternate patterns, Rewrite files in binary mode, Shrink files, Rewrite again and Encrypt, Rename, and Delete.
This helps you take control of the information you don’t want anyone else to get their hands on by permanently removing the files.
The application claims to have military grade shredding, with almost 20 times rewrite so that it is not recoverable.
You have two options for the interface, a black and white skin, both come with the same functionality. When the shredding has been completed, you can view the details of the procedure done on the files.
