is there a (free) File Shredder around that will intergrate into XP's Explorer:
ie: right click on the file and have to option to shred the file.
I have WinUtilities Pro (from memory I got it though this site ), and it will shred files, but the abiltity to do it quickly with a right click would be nice.
yes, dangerous, but nice :-p
ps: I did get WinUtilities Pro though dotTech – the version is 9.41 and is asking to upgrade to the latest version – it is safe to do so, yes? (I won't lose the License?)
There's a new Dot.Tech license. Dunno how he got it, but it works PERFECTLY! :D
Yes, infact I do know a program which you can right-click on anything and it could shred the file into nothing…
It's called "Ashampoo WinOptimizer". I believe there's a 2010 version… you can get that, or buy the new vesrsion 7 which is very similar to the 2010 one… Either way, it works quite well! :D But be warned, it will show up an error if you shred too many files at the same time. Though, it still does it job, so hopefully this helped you.
I recommend Eraser: http://eraser.heidi.ie/
It's Free software and integrates directly with Windows Explorer, allowing for right-click shreds on both files, folders and the Recycle Bin. It also allows Unused Space shredding by right-clicking on a drive, and scheduled shreds. In fact, here's the list of features as quoted from the Developer:
- It works with Windows XP (with Service Pack 3), Windows Server
2003 (with Service Pack 2), Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7
and Windows Server 2008 R2
- Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000 can still be used with version 5.7!
- It works with any drive that works with Windows
- Secure drive erasure methods are supported out of the box
- Erases files, folders and their previously deleted counterparts
- Works with an extremely customisable Scheduler
I've used it for ages and have found it to be extremely useful and effective. You're welcome!
OHHHHH! Nice find! I almost forget about that! Yes, that one! It's really good eraser!!! It's even way better than the Ashampoo one! It doesn't crash, it's simple, fast, and it's free!
Once again, nice find Spirit, nice find! BTW, there's a portable one for "Portable Apps". Here's the link: http://portableapps.com/apps/u…..r_portable
Good luck mate!
Well, I'm only glad to be helping others and sharing my knowledge.
The irony is, I'm also a regular user of portableApps.com; but I never even noticed there was a portable version of Eraser. So I guess I have to thank you in return. Keep up the good work, Joji!
The 6.0.7 is for your desktop. The 5.8.8 is a special version compatible only for your computer and your memory stick. The 5.8.8 has stripped components such as registry keys, right click function, and other stuff removed.
So if you would like to install Eraser on your computer, install 6.0.7. If you would like to install Eraser Portable on a memory stick, then install 5.8.8 onto your stick.
I hope that clarifies some things… That did help… right?
