KORO File Shredder is a file shredding software for Windows which erases sensitive data in a manner that reconstruction of the erased data is not possible. It allows for data to be overwritten multiple times before being deleted which ensures that the data once deleted cannot be accessed or retrieved.
KORO File Shredder allows for deletion of data without the possibility of data retrieval or reconstruction. It allows the users to delete their sensitive data permanently. The program uses three data algorithms. Before deletion, the files or folders are overwritten by one of the three algorithms to ensure permanent deletion.
The software supports Zero overwrites, DoD (7 passes) and Gutmann (35 passes). DoD (7 passes) is in accordance with the Department of Defence of the United States regulation DoD 5220.22-M (ECE). Gutmann (35 passes) is based on the method developed by Peter Gutmann. This is the most secured method for data deletion but is also very slow.
The application has an easy to use interface and supports data shredding on internal as well as external drives. It supports external data storage media such as USB drives, SD Flash drives and Compact Flash drives. The software incorporates custom delete options and protects the system files from being deleted accidentally. It allows for deletion of files and folder logs and has the options of deleting individual or multiple files or erasing contents of the entire folders.
KORO File Shredder’s current version was released on August 12 2014. It supports Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows 2000. It provides support for 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. The application supports multiple languages.
Delete Files Permanently is an application similar to KORO File Shredder which deletes files permanently by overwriting the data before deletion. It uses US Army AR380-19, US DoD 5220.22-M, German VSITR and B Schneier algorithms for deleting files. It provides support for Windows 8, 7, Server 2008, Vista, 2003, XP, 2000 and 98.
BCwipe is another application for file shredding and deletion. It incorporates US DoD and Guttman algorithms and deletes files without the possibility of recovery. It allows for deletion of individual files and folders and freeing of disc space by deleting data fragments.
KORO File Shredder is an efficient and easy to use application which deletes the data beyond recovery. It incorporates various algorithms which ensure that a file once deleted is beyond recovery thereby preventing unauthorized access to files and folders. This results in increased data security.
