digital file shredder Freeraser is a digital file shredder that enables you to permanently delete sensitive data with multiple overwrites of random data. It offers a simple overwrite (fast) as well as to DoD 5220.22M (slower) and Gutmann (very slow) compatible deletion methods. The program is very easy to use, it adds a new waste bin icon to your desktop, and any file or folder that you drag onto the bin is permanently deleted and cannot be recovered. Freeraser can also be installed in portable mode to your USB stick. Copyright

I rate it 8 out of 10 4 stars by rkaine6268 Oct 15, 2012
I can't really give this program a full 10 because while it removes the target file from access by most software, it still leaves traces in the FAT and the MFT. I have other programs that shred the target file, and clears the entry in the FAT, but I have yet to find anything that 'does it all', whether freeware or shareware. Keep up the good work, though show Review details
Secure way to remove files 4 stars by Leftie59 Mar 11, 2010
I was looking for a secure way to remove files from a mapped drive. Freeraser does it easily, just drag any file onto the icon and all trace of the file vanishes. show Review details
No explorer integration 2 stars by Shodan816 Feb 25, 2009 (Read all my 43 reviews)
There are other, and better, erasers available that integrate with your explorer menu so you can erase files directly from Windows explorer. show Review details
