Max File Shredder is a tool created to help you permanently delete files from your computer.
The app comes with a nice and clean interface, with an intuitive layout that enables you to easily find all the functions this software has to offer.
Max File Shredder overwrites the deleted files to make sure that the information is corrupted and can no longer be recovered, even by using specialized tools.
The purpose of the application is to protect your privacy, beyond deleting the data on the disk. As such, it targets personal information, like any type of activity history on your computer, which can prove to be a security risk.
Thus, the software searches in three main areas: Start Menu, Windows and Internet Explorer objects. For example, you can erase the recent document list, the “Run” history, Swap files, the registry stream, media player history, temporary Windows files, as well as various private data.
Also, the program allows you to permanently delete any type of files on your computer, shred the contents of your Recycle Bin or the deleted data on your disk drives, thus contributing to claiming more free space on your computer.
Max File Shredder offers the possibility to plan ahead any of these tasks, individually or in bulk. You can have your app run as a one-time operation or schedule the operations to be run on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
All in all, Max File Shredder is a useful tool, with an interesting-looking interface. Despite the fact that the UI is easy-to-use, the program wasn’t created with first-time users in mind.
