Alternate File Shredder Review

Sven Sorensen
Permanently delete files and folders with no chance of recovery
A review of Alternate File Shredder by Sven Sørensen

Alternative File Shredder is a free utility which allows you to completely destroy the traces of files and folders on your system. It does so by overwriting existing data on a medium with random numbers and letters or gibberish.

For those wishing to remove traces of sensitive data like banking details, using this program will completely prevent the ability of restoration programs for recovering the data.

For extra security, Alternative File Shredder can overwrite data several different times, making it next to impossible for any type of recovery. Once the random data has been saved to disk, it will then wipe it so that it would also be difficult to even know whether this type of software has been used.

Alternative File Shredder is a very effective data shredder which is not only free, but well recommended.

Alternate File Shredder is software which can permanently erase files.

Alternate File Shredder features and highlights:
  • Random data writing: If checked, the data of the files is overwritten with a random structure, otherwise using zero-values
  • Confirm delete: if checked, the program will ask you before a file gets deleted
  • Number of iterations: sets the number of iterations the data is overwritten, more iterations are safer, less are faster
  • Ignore write protection: if selected, the write protection of files is ignored
