Did you know that when you empty the Recycle Bin, the files are not actually permanently deleted? Not even when you format a drive. In most scenarios, this is a good thing because you always have the possibility of recovering them, but it's not so good if someone can do the same thing on your computer.

If another person tries a recovery application, they could easily get ahold of your most private information you wished to completely remove from your system. In this case, you need an application like Simple File Shredder.

Lightweight and easy to use

The interface is very simple, yet intuitive. Files and folder can be added via drag and drop or using the dedicated menu. You can also use it to shred system files, such as browser history and cookies or the free space on your drives. In addition, you can password-protect Simple File Shredder, in order to prevent any unauthorized use.

Quickly finds and removes desired elements

Scanning for these files is carried out in no time, and at the simple push of the "Shred Now" button, all those files are permanently removed (and this time, for good).

To sum it up

In conclusion, Simple File Shredder makes it easy to gain free space, but it can also be used to make data unrecoverable. Its simplicity, combine with its efficiency are the two main qualities that recommend it.
