File shredder to CCleaner

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I still missing this function in CCleaner. There is secure delete for everything in options and wipe free space, but no file shredder for selected files and folders only.

I dont need secure delete everything i have checked in CCleaner, also wipe free space heavily stress HDD.

So with file shredder will be CCleaner complete.

For now i must use another program to doing this.

It's been a requested feature for many years now, but still hasn't been implemented. And anyone wanting it will have to use another tool to accomplish it. Personally I use WipeFile to accomplish it, it's freeware and small.

I am using Bitkiller, small portable program: https://sourceforge.net/projects/bitkiller/


Just looked at its source. It sets the files attributes to normal then creates a new file in its place. No file is ever overwritten. The creator's idea of the Gutmann method(ignoring 20 years old and pointless ) is to use a for loop 35 times using an ineffective buffer. The code is utter garbage.
