Advanced File Shredder is a program used to remove traces of
unwanted programs or files so they can not be recovered. AFS(Advanced File
Shredder) is a compact program designed to do one thing delete files in such a
manner so they cannot be recovered even using recovery software.
The programs Authors claim that using the program things deleted by it can not
be recovered and that they use government standard shredding. I don't know how
accurate their claims are but when I used it to delete a file, and tried
recovering it with my old file recovery software(Lost & Found) I could not get
back the things I deleted with AFS.
The program itself is very straight forward and easy to use, Just select the
files you want shredded, and press the shred button. A help file is included
here, but since the program is so straight forward I don't think anyone will
find much of a need for it.
Theres nothing fancy here, just a simple file shredder that apparently does its
job fairly well.
