Good free file shredder ?
Is there a good freeware or shareware file shredder than can cope with
modern HDDs and USB flash drives ?
I downloaded PC Optimizer Pro because it boasted a 'free' fileshredder, only
to discover it only allowed you to shred 10 files! Unlees, of course, you
paid for the whole caboodle.

Eraser:

Read the options for each erase method.
DOD method is no longer considered truly secure.
