works great. easy.

right click -> services -> secure delete. done. exactly what i wanted. you have to reboot your machine for it to show up. i set it to 1-pass because i read that’s all you need. seems like anything higher is redundant. i recommend 1 pass.

Does its Job

Although I havent been able to get it to appear on the menu under services, as the note above explains, I’m using the app by highlighting the files I want to delete and dragging them to the icon. Works great. Deletes quickly. What more is there?

seems to work as described

Was easy to install, does work with OS Sierra. The only thing I did not check was to see if the shredded files are in any way recoverable using advanced techniques. I hope they are not recoverable, but I do not have the forensic computer skills to check.
