I add an instant file shredder to my Windows desktop using the SDelete utility
, available freely from Sysinternals. Save the SDelete.exe in your C:\WINDOWS\system32 directory. Add the following text to a new text document:
echo .* * *W A R N I N G * * *
echo .The File(s)/Folders(s) Will Be Permanently Deleted!
echo .Press CTRL-C to Abort and Terminate Batch Job Or...
sdelete -p 4 -s %1
Save the file as "shred.bat" on your desktop right next to your Recycling Bin. Now just drag and drop those sensitive files onto the icon to make them disappear forever!
