    "Securely File Shredder has been one of the best file shredding softwares that I have come across. You can delete files right from your computer, and recover them. It's happened to me so many times when I thought I lost something, and I was unable to retrieve it. This software allows me the opportunity to recover, which i'm so grateful for. "

    Eraser

    When you delete files, they aren't truly gone from your computer. Your OS removes the reference of the file but it remains on your disk until it is overwritten. What Eraser does is to really delete the files from your disk, so they aren't retrievable in any way. If you have some files, photos, writings, or whatever other files you want to completely get rid of, then this tool will help you out.

    "I used this program when I was selling one of my old computers. Used it to delete the sensitive files on my computer so my information was safe. This is a pretty good program and necessary to keep your credentials protected."
