File Destroyer 1.0

File Destroyer writes over a file you want to delete several times to make sure it is really gone.
File Destroyer is a basic piece of software that was designed with a single goal in mind: help users delete a file permanently, thus blocking data recovery software from doing its job.

There are only a few options to play with, but the idea behind the whole program is very simple: File Destroyer can quickly shred files several times and rewrite the sectors, just to make sure no recovery app can get back the target file.

Users are obviously prompted to choose the files they wish to remove, with the main window showing just a few details about them, including size and path.

Drag and drop support is not available, which is quite a shame, so you have no other option than to use the built-in “Add” button to add new files to the queue.

It’s very important to note that File Destroyer enables users to choose the number of times files shall be deleted and thus overwrite the data that could be later recovered.

A progress bar is also available to keep you up-to-date with the overall progress of the removal, but otherwise File Destroyer remains a very simple app.

As you can see, it’s pretty difficult to get lost in the interface and although a help file is not available, everybody should quickly figure out how to use it.

Overall, if you’re giving a try to File Destroyer, there’s no chance to be disappointed. It does its job very well and, what’s more, it can be safely installed by both beginners and those more experienced.
