    I have covered several drives here in the past and to be fair some of these are quite the kit with James Bond ringing about them and this one is no different but it has a trick up its sleeve compared to others when it comes to the tech aspect.

    SecureShredder for Windows

    With SecureShredder you can remove files from your hard drive without fear they could be recovered. In order to remove files permanently from your system you have to use a program that is capable of rewriting the files with random series of binary data multiple times. This process is often called shredding. That way, the actual content of the file has been overwritten and the possibilities to recover such a shredded file are mostly theoretical.

    Proper Usage

    When you delete a file, you've created an area on the disk that's designated as free and ready to accept fresh data. Luckily, unless that area has been overwritten, it retains the deleted contents, so corrupted file undelete recovery is still possible.

    Important Note: it’s not possible to select System Drive. For example, if Windows is installed on Drive C, you cannot select it.

    Shredding Algorithms: Simple erasure method:
    Simple erasure method (quick), overwrites the files with pseudorandom data.

    Advanced erasure method:
    Secure erasure method (slow) in accordance with DoD 5220.22-M data wipe method (US DOD Wipe Standard)

    File Eraser:

    SecureShredder has integrated File Eraser which uses shredding algorithm to wipe single/multiply file/’s and an option to wipe entire folder.

    Add File(s) - Click to add files ready to be shredded. A file picker will appear. Select one or more files and press open. The files will appear in main panel. You can add as many files as you want. Note that adding the files into shredding queue does not delete them and you can remove the files from queue later.

    Add Folder(s) - Click to add folders ready to be shredded. A folder picker will appear. Select a folder and press open. The folder will appear in main panel. You can add as many folders as you want but you have to add them one by one. The whole folder structure is added including files and subfolders.

    Disk Eraser:

    SecureShredder has integrated Disk Eraser which uses shredding algorithm to wipe entire disk or unused disk space.

    Erase Free Disk Space - This option will shred unused or free disk space across the whole disk volume. For instance, this option is very useful if you haven't shred your unwanted files regularly but instead you used regular windows delete command and now you want your previously deleted files un-retrievable. Those files now cannot be shredded by picking them since they are already deleted. This option will enforce shredding of everything you have deleted once using the regular delete command, whether it was yesterday or months ago.

    Erase Entire Disk Space - This option will shred all the data across the whole disk volume.

    What storage devices does SecureShredder support?

    SecureShredder works on internal and external hard drives, USB flash drives, and SD cards.  

    Can SecureShredder erase large-size drives?

    Yes. SecureShredder can wipe data from drives larger than 4 TB.

    How many passes are necessary to permanently erase files from a device?

    The simple erasure method, which overwrites all files with pseudorandom data, is sufficient for most users. However, SecureShredder has an advanced, three-pass method that erases data according to the U.S. Department of Defense standard.

    How long does it take for SecureShredder to erase files?

    The length of time depends on the number of files. Document Eraser is almost immediate. Drive Eraser varies. It will erase a hard drive with hundreds of average files in a few minutes. Erasing a hard drive with hundreds of thousands of files will take hours. 

    Can SecureShredder erase more than one drive at a time?

    Yes. SecureShredder can perform independent wipes or parallel erasure. Independent wipes are done on a per-device basis. Parallel erasure purges data from multiple drives at the same time.
