This is a program that grants you to finally remove files and folders (no restoring possible). The application is also able to overwrite the free space on a disk, which means, that already removed files cannot be recovered, too. Alternate File Shredder enables you to wipe files and/or folders definitely, which means they cannot be restored by recovery applications. This is realized in that way, that before the file is removed, its content will be overwritten with a arbitrary content or zero-values various times. The final result is, that recovery application may recover the file, but the content is altered - so the file gets useless. Maybe you already removed some documents, which you better like to be shred. Here the software offers the chance to shred the free space from a drive. This is realized by writing information into the entire free disk space and remove it afterwards. This is required to make sure, that all actual file fragments are overwritten. Included translations: German, English, Spanish, German, French, Japanese, Chinese, Swedish, Korean, Greek, Arabic, Russian.
- The program is powerful and effective.
- The application is lightweight and runs low on resources.
- The user interface has an outdated design.
