xShredder Review

Sven Sorensen
Privacy batch deletion tool which can destroy your sensitive files permanently without the possibility of recover
A review of xShredder by Sven Sørensen

xShredder is a privacy utility which helps you remove files permanently so that they may not be restored using file recovery programs.

xShredder's interface is pretty easy-to-understand and contains a list of pending jobs, some shortcuts and a menu bar where several functions are available.

xShredder provides several different methods of permanently deleting files from plain and simple to more advanced methods used by professionals.

Once a new job is created, you should choose which method you would like to use to delete data. Each has its advantage, but the more advanced modes use more system resources and can take significantly longer. xShredder has an option to remove empty directories and the option to shred directories after a reboot.

The user settings of xShredder include changing languages, automatic start-up with Windows, Recycling Bin monitoring and to remove and delete NTFS alternate data streams.

In the end, xShredder is a very capable application which takes advantage of known file deletion methods used by the U.S. Army and can help protect your privacy, especially when disposing of or selling hard drives or other storage medium.

xShredder features and highlights:
  • Erase in all directories and sub-directories

  • Several methods for data deletion
