✔ Immediate, secure file deleting.

Don't want to wait while you "Secure Delete" the entire trash just to wipe one critical file? Tired of sending files to the trash, then having to empty it? Paper Shredder is a beautifully-animated, dead-simple way to immediately Secure Delete files.

★ Drag-n-drop files onto the app window or the dock icon
★ Files visually feed into the shredder as the operation proceeds
★ Preference available for Dock-only mode (no window), so you can keep your workflow direct and unobstructed.
★ Option to secure delete using 1-pass, 7-pass, or 35-pass DoD-compliant Guttman secure delete algorithms.
★ Emergency 'Stop!' button in case you change your mind mid-shred
★ Other preferences help you fine-tune your experience: launch on login, "overwrite with zero" after deleting, and an optional history list.

With Paper Shredder, you know it's gone.

Hub*Apps delivers an excellent, fast & efficient App for deleting securelyow

I purchased this app almost 24 hours ago. However it was NOT my first choice. Just 48 hours ago I bought an app claiming to do exactly what PaperShredder actually does do. The 1st app worked on some smaller files but on the larger files or alias files it would not work at all. I went with my first choice for a few reasons. There were over 200 reviews compared to HubApps PaperShredder only have 9 reviews currently. Also PaperShredder was $3 more than the older more established app. So now I have two apps that do the same thing in some departments. However put them both on the same 35 pass Guttman secure erase or the 7 pass Dod secure pass and PaperShredder is 3x faster. Last but not least the format of the app is visually nicer than the other less expensive app that has been on the market for a year or so. It just goes to show you that you get what you pay for.

Worked great until I upgraded to Sierra

This app was great until IOS update to Sierra. Now it doesnt work at all.
