Secure File Deleter allows you to completely and securely delete selected files from your system via an extremely user-friendly UI.As you know, when you delete a file or folder it's still possible to recover it, even when placed in the recycle bin.Secure File Deleter aims to prevent recovery of those deleted files by replacing the contents with random data. You are given the choice of many security algorithms for data destruction. The program can write acombination of ones and zeroes onto each sector of your hard drive, or any other characters.
Secure File Deleter uses the following cryptographic security algorithms:
Method made by Peter Gutman, world known scientist
Algorithm GOST_R_50739_95 which is widely used in different security systems in Russia
Less famous, but also very secure – RCMP_TSSIT_OPS_II
Method of Mr. Bruce Schneier, German scientist
German VSITR algorithm which is used in Germany security systems as well as in other EU countries
British standard HMG_Infosec_Standard_5
Instructions for US Army AR380_19
Instructions for US Air Force 5020
Cryptographic pseudo-random number generator CPRNG
Random characters written to random places of the file
Random characters written to all content of the file

This update includes very convenient change and few less important changes.
• Added support for Windows OS contextual menu. Earlier, by clicking file or folder, first you need to navigate to "Send To" section to access secure deletion. From now on, option for secure deletion will appear in the popup menu at once, as soon as you click any file or folder. This will provide you much more convenience and faster access.
• Added support for 28 languages, some translations was made by humans, some of them using Google automatic translator. We're still looking for volunteers who will help us correct these automatic translations!
• Design of system alerts was improved.
• Interface of greek language was partially translated by our volunteer from geogeo.gr, thank you very much!
• Installation improved: program files folder will include original english text files for translation, if someone would like to help us with the translation.
• Installation improved: links in the Windows OS menu was re-arranged, there is no mess there now.
• Some other light improvements.
