Most people know by now that erasing files and folders using the default function in Windows does not mean the data is gone for good, since there are numerous specialized applications that can recover the files without too much hassle.
If you want to make sure your documents are truly removed when deleting them, you can rely on a dedicated solution, such as Robusta File Shredder.
One of the greatest advantages of the app is that it integrates within the context menu of Windows Explorer, making it easy for novices and experts alike to effortlessly delete confidential or sensitive data.
In other words, you only need to right-click a file or a folder and set Robusta File Shredder to delete it, then wait patiently until the process is completed. Moreover, you get to pause or abort the deletion, yet you need to keep in mind that some of the data might be already wiped.
Robusta File Shredder supports several deletion methods and you can select the one you like best, depending on how thorough you want the shredding to be.
For instance, you might prefer a quick method such as Pseudorandom, British HMG or Russian GOST P50739-95, when the file you want to delete is not very valuable.
On the other hand, you will most likely want to rely on the Gutmann method when you want to ensure your most important documents are securely removed.
Robusta File Shredder can also be of use when it comes to performing an in-depth cleaning of the unused space on your computer’s drives. The only thing you need to do is to right-click one of the drives and to shred either files and folders or free space.
All in all, the application provides you with a straightforward solution for securely erasing confidential documents and directories so they can no longer be removed with specialized software.
