Alternate File Shredder is an application that allows you to finally delete files and/or folders (no recovery possible). The program also can overwrite the free space on a drive, which means, that already deleted files cannot be restored, too. Alternate File Shredder allows you to delete files and/or folders finally, which means they cannot be restored by recovery software. This is realized in that way, that before the file is deleted, its content will be overwritten with a random content or zero-values several times. The result of this is, that recovery software may restore the file with its size, but the content is changed - so the file gets useless. Maybe you already deleted some files, which you better like to be shred. Here the program offers the possibility to shred the free disk space of a drive. This is realized by writing data into the whole free disk space and delete it afterwards. This is necessary to make sure, that all existing file fragments are overwritten. Included translations: English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Swedish, Arabic, Greek, Russian, Japanese, Czech.
