Irvine, CA (PRWEB) October 6, 2005
StompSoft Inc., a recognized manufacturer of award winning backup, system utility, and online security/privacy software, today announced its new Digital File Shredder Pro application.
Most computer users don't realize that when a file or folder is deleted and the recycle bin emptied, the actual data is still present and only the references to the file are deleted. Data recovery applications such as StompSoft's RecoverLost Data™ can find and recover these deleted files quite easily. Like a conventional paper shredder renders paper documents un-readable, StompSoft's new Digital File Shredder Pro does the same for digital documents by completely and permanently shredding the data.
Digital File Shredder Pro physically "overwrites" items that are shredded, rendering the data unrecoverable. Digital File Shredder Pro supports the Department of Defense DOD 5220.22M standard of 3 overwrites for permanent data erasure on hard drives and consumers can even customize with more overwrites. For all it's complexity under the hood, Digital File Shredder Pro is very simple to use. During installation a desktop shredder icon is created and users can simply drag and drop files and folders to be shredded onto it. Digital File Shredder Pro also supports "right-click" shredding of files and folders and even an option to shred the contents of the recycle bin. Digital File Shredder Pro can even be set to shred deleted emails in popular email client applications such as Microsoft® Outlook® and Outlook Express. The application includes a scheduler that will allow regular scheduled shredding of the recycle bin, deleted emails, Internet temporary files, and the contents of selected folders. Even the hard drive's free space can be shredded for additional security.
"Identity theft and computer hacking is at an all-time high," said Michael Hummell, President of StompSoft. "It's becoming essential to ensure deleted items are really deleted as identity thieves and even other people sharing a computer can recover items thought to be deleted. Digital File Shredder will ensure that deleted files, folders, emails, and more will stay out of the wrong hands," Hummell added.
As an "extra" for consumers, Digital File Shredder Pro includes built-in system cleaning tools which will erase a user's tracks on the Internet and within Windows by deleting history caches, recent documents, auto-completes, cookies, indexes, and more. Digital File Shredder Pro is extremely effective and essential for shared computers.
