EZ File Shredder: A simple and effective secure file deletion software
EZ File Shredder is a simple software that securely deletes any file on your system leaving absolutely no forensic trace of the file so that it can never be recovered again. This software uses file deletion methods that are used by government and law enforcement agencies throughout the world to permanently delete files.
When a file is normally deleted in a system, Windows simply stores that file in a hidden location on your hard drive, making that space available for any other file. The file is never really deleted until it is completely overwritten by another file. This software securely deletes the file by overwriting the file several times with random information before it is stored in this hidden space, making the contents of the file impossible to recover.
