Hanjian File Bomb
Hanjian File Bomb is a simple-to-use software application designed to permanently remove files from the computer, in order to prevent third parties from recovering them using specialized software.
It comes loaded with a few powerful options and just a couple of configuration parameters, which are accessible to all types of users, even those less experienced.
Simple setup and interface
The installation operation is a pretty fast job, and the only notable aspect about is that .NET Framework must be installed in order for Hanjian File Bomb to work properly. The user-friendly GUI is represented by a very small window that shows all settings available in the app.
Wipe files or entire directories
There are two ways for shredding data: you can either indicate a single file using the file browser, or specify a directory whose entire files you want to eliminate at the same time, thanks to the fact that batch processing is supported.
Moreover, it can be asked to erase all files, regardless of their type, close running instances, include subfolders, and remove the directories as well. There are no other notable options available here.
Downsides, evaluation and conclusion
Unfortunately, Hanjian File Bomb is not explicit toward the security algorithm it uses for shredding data. Furthermore, when deselecting the option to shred any file type, it doesn't give you the possibility to write the exact extensions of files you want eliminated.
As expected, it had minimal impact on computer performance in our tests, running on low CPU and memory. No error dialogs popped up, and the tool didn't freeze or crash. However, it lacks some important features, and it hasn't been updated for a long time. Nevertheless, you can test it for yourself, since it's free.
