File Shredder Tool v1.4

File Shredder Tool is a simple Windows OS utilty that can permanently delete files
from your hard drive so that no one can recover them with file recovery software. As you know the Windows native “Delete” operation doesn’t permanently delete files, in fact most of the files deleted via the recycle bin can be easily recovered. This tool can completely remove sensitive data from your hard drive in a fast and easy way.

For Windows 7 SP1, 8, 8.1, 10, 11 (32/64-bit)
