This is the original FileShredder - the top streamlined deletion software since 2011 and the first to develop the innovative right-click method. With just a simple click or drag, you can securely delete sensitive documents, or quickly erase files and free up space bypassing the Trash on your Mac, USB stick, or any other external drive. FileShredder provides an easy solution for removing any file right away from your computer.
Right-Click (Secondary Click) to Delete Permanently
Launch the app to add Shred and Secure Shred to the Finder Context Menu.
Simply right-click on a file or folder on the desktop, in the Trash, or in any other Finder window, and select Shred or Secure Shred to delete permanently. No app relaunching is required.
Drag-and-Drop to Delete Permanently
You can also drag-and-drop items onto the app icon on the dock. No app launching is required.
In Preferences, configure whether Secure Shred is used for the drag-and-drop method.
Please do not use drag-and-drop to delete aliases or symbolic links. The operating system will instruct the app to delete the original files rather than the aliases or links.
Secure Deletion Algorithm
In Preferences, choose from four algorithms for Secure Shred: 1 pass (fastest), 3 passes (DoE standard), 7 passes (DoD standard), or 35 passes (Gutmann deletion, safest).
Handles many special cases.
