EZ File Shredder is a small software application specialized in secure cleaning operations. Its aim is to help you permanently delete sensitive data from your computer by overwriting the file several times with random information.

A normal deletion process doesn’t ensure that items are completely wiped out from your system, so they can still be recovered with the aid of dedicated tools.

Straightforward looks

EZ File Shredder implements an intuitive behavior that helps even less experienced users easily discover and tweak the program’s dedicated parameters.

You can choose the desired shredding method from a drop-down list and view information about each algorithm, such as the strength level and speed. Files can be added in the working environment using the built-in browse button, so you cannot rely on the drag-and-drop support.

Different shredding modes

EZ File Shredder gives you the freedom to choose between powerful deletion algorithms, such as Schneier, Gutmann, DoD 5220.22-M sanitization method, or others.

Tests have shown that the tool carries out a task pretty quickly and without errors but this pretty much depends on the size of the file and shredding method. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not affected.

On the downside, EZ File Shredder doesn’t offer support for batch processing operations, so you are not allowed to shred multiple files at the same time.

Bottom line

All things considered, EZ File Shredder comes bundled with some handy features for helping you shred files permanently from your computer. The intuitive layout makes it an ideal app for rookies and professionals alike.
