Select items and purge method, and remove all sensitive information
This software utility enables you to select, with a built-in file browser the items you are interested in purging from your hard drive, be they several or just one document, as well as an entire directory. You can also delete only files that have been created before a specified date and choose one of the three types of purges (random bytes plus zeroes, alternate bit patterns plus zeroes, alternate bit patterns plus random bytes twice).
Furthermore, you should know that it is possible to test the purge speed for each partition and drive, so that you can approximate more accurately how much this process will take. Reports regarding the completed process is going to be displayed in a new window, and you can copy the information to the Clipboard.
All configurations can be saved to for the next run, or to the computer, as an operation file, in a DDS extension, so that you can use it at a later date.

The response time is good, it is fairly friendly to your system’s performance and the interface is suitable to all users.
