FolderShredder - Lightweight data shredding utility
Review by on
If you want to get rid of certain pieces of data forever, a shredding utility is just what you need. A good example is FolderShredder, which can permanently erase any data you feed it. This is how you can make sure that nothing you delete will be brought back with specialized recovery applications. The software is lightweight and its functionality is straightforward, so you don't have to spend too much time when you need to shred some data.

The application is distributed as a single file, so you don't have to install anything. It works on all modern Windows platforms and it doesn't ask for any special tools or services. Also, its modest hardware requirements allow you to run it even on older machines.

All you have to do is run the application, point at a folder and click a button. FolderShredder will immediately erase everything it finds in that folder. When the operation is complete, you can view a full log on a separate window.

There is not much to say about what you can do with the application, but there is plenty to say about what it can do for you. When you delete a file, the operating system will only mark that area of the hard drive as available, rather than actually erasing the physical data. FolderShredder will not only erase the data, but it will write and overwrite that area, to make sure nothing can ever be recovered. This is done through the DOD 5220.22-M algorithm, which is used by the US Department of Defense.

When you erase something with FolderShredder, you can be sure that nothing survives.

Pros:
The application's functionality is straightforward and easy to understand. It uses a powerful algorithm to erase data and prevent it from being recovered.

Cons:
The application doesn't delete the parent folder.
