HandyBits File Shredder is one of the software tools aimed at both rookies and more experienced users who want to securely remove files with minimum effort.
Once installed and launched, the app provides three different modes to quickly delete a file: a desktop icon, shell menu integration and via the main window of the app.
First of all, HandyBits File Shredder can create a desktop icon that allows you to simply drag and drop the items you wish to remove to this icon. Shell menu integration is also available, so just select the target files, right click them and select the “Destroy with Shredder” option.
The main window of the app comes with drag and drop support, but you can also remove files in the traditional way by using the built-in “Select files” and “Select folders” options.
Sadly, HandyBits File Shredder doesn’t come with any advanced options concerning the wiping process, but instead it lets you optimize its performance by choosing between faster processing and higher security. You can adjust the number of overpasses, but nothing that could get you too much trouble.
You don’t have to be a computer guru to figure out how to use HandyBits File Shredder and basic technical knowledge should be enough. It works smoothly on all Windows platforms on the market.
As a conclusion, HandyBits File Shredder is an app aimed at all those who want to securely remove files from their drives. Chances are however that professional users may find the lack of more advanced configuration options a bit frustrating.
