    Version 2.2.0 fixes some bugs, adds direct links to privacy policy, help and developer contact. Version 2.1.0 has a major speed improvement, up to 300% faster now. It also has a more accurate time calculation and fixes some small bugs. Version 2.0.1 fixes German localization typos and a bug in device size calculation. Version 2.0 is a complete rewrite of the original application. New GUI, faster and more stable algorithms.


Now up to 300% faster! Shredder allows to permanently destroy file contents and wipe previously used storage space, so that secret data can't be restored even by advanced recovery tools. Deleting a file or directory does not remove the contents. Recovery tools can be used to restore the previous content. Shredder8 allows you to destroy the file contents prior to deleting files and directories. Shredder8 also allows you to clean the existing free space of a storage device, where old file content may still exist. You can choose out of a variety of standard cleaning algorithms, like U.S DoD 5220.22-M, British HMG IS5 (Enhanced), Russian GOST P50739-95, German VSITR or just do a quick shred, which should be enough for most SSD based storage devices and USB flash drives.


  • Select multiple files and directories to shred
  • Cleans nested folders and their content
  • U.S DoD 5220.22-M, British HMG IS5 (Enhanced), Russian GOST P50739-95, German VSITR and quick shred algorithms
  • Clean (wipe) free space on any writable storage device (SSD cards, Hard Disks, USB flash drives etc.)

I was trying to delete some sensitive data files in my AppData, which is normally hidden. I've configured desktop windows explorer so I could browse into those subdirectories and I could delete them, but still the shredder cannot browse to that folder (appdata is not listed when selecting files or folders) so I cannot shred them from there. If I try to move the files to another spot that could be accessed then I risk further exposure or traces of the file I try to shred. This is not sufficient for security.

I'm trying to delete a folder with a TON of subfolders (thanks NPM) and this app crashes every time. Sorry.

After a few times of trying to get files in the Shredder 8 window, I placed the Shredder 8 folder on my desk top and simply dragged my files to the folder and just clicked SELECT ALL and away they went. It is easy, fast and final. A great app..

Bottom line: Delete items in recycle bin? NOPE no link for that. You have to individually select files. GARBAGE! Want to wipe the free space...okay...get ready to sit back for 3 days on a simple 3 wipe pass algorithm...in fact, it has NEVER made it through the wipe sequence even once. This app is USELESS! We so need a port of CCleaner or File Shredder to RT (amongst many other TRUE security apps). If it doesn't come soon I'm selling this RT as a paper weight. It's just an NSA wet dream of the perfect OS to monitor you with!

You do it all! Shredding existing files and wiping free space too. Which is the only way to shred deleted files. It took me 29 hours to do my Lenovo CPU. That's mot unusual. It would be nice to have a scanner to verify data destruction. Nice job! Can't complain about the price. I would pay to have a scanner. Windows RT simply doesn't support any freeware.

really effective way to completely delete file with deferent type of delete but the interface is really ugly and the delete process is to slow when it in pass 3 delete method and the interface is not touch friendly the icon are to small if you a windows 8 user the are a lot solution that will work with desktop mod but if you are windows rt user this app is for you
