The Different Levels of Shredding

Here you can see the first of the four shredding levels available in Moo0 File Shredder. With the “Shred Once” option, there is still a possibility of recovery, so if you have something that you want to be unrecoverable, this is probably not the setting that you want.

Notice the increase (a little over three times the basic level) in what is done to shred a file with the “Extra Carefully (More Secure)” setting. Already at the first Department of Defense level (nice!).

    Does this offer context menu integration? I’ve been using the open-source File Shredder (really original name!) because of the ease of simply right-clicking to securely shred a file.
