    Now I can do it like in the movies, deleting files before the cops get in :P

    Now this is what I’ve been looking for! I have browser “page hiders” but THIS is something that could really come in handy. Thank you for bringing this to my attention as I feel that what I do and when I do it is MY business when it comes to my computer!

    A question – I take it this app doesn’t shred anything? Just gives you a quick deletion, but all files still remain on disc and marked as deleted? Just curious.
