Securely deleting files is not quite as easy as it appears at first. The operating system does not really remove the data; references to the content are simply removed and it is easy to reconstruct this data using the appropriate program. ArchiCrypt Shredder deletes sensitive data so completely that it is impossible to reconstruct it using software (lab-tested). Special functions like deleting free space, cleaning cluster tips (fragments at the end of a file that cannot be deleted and which may contain sensitive data), monitoring online connections, and automatically removing Internet surfing traces are centrally accessible in the ArchiCrypt Shredder user interface. Using the scheduler, specified deletions can be timed and carried out later. An extremely flexible plug-in system (the full version contains more than 70 plug-ins) expands the shredder to include many functions that, in addition to deleting traces from applications, can also perform backup tasks. Shredder provides a special feature in connection with information about your usage patterns. In the background, the operating system collects data about programs and files and conceals these unseen and encrypted on your computer. The shredder is not only able to delete these files, but also decrypt them. Anyone who wants to clean entire partitions or hard drives securely will find ArchiCrypt Shredder and DBAN, which is also integrated, to be a fantastic solution. The shredders highlight is the function that monitors "Secure Zones". Almost every application has a "data leak" (without your knowledge, data is placed in temporary files and deleted from time to time simply with the operating system). The shredder intercepts these unsecure deletions and replaces them with secure procedures.
