Secure File Shredder?

Quick Question, what is the best "FREEWARE" file shredding app for WinXP ?

p.s. I am looking for the most secure, so the files will never be-able to be undeleted.

Thanks,
-BassKozz

Take a look at this page ... http://www.thefreecountry.com/security/securedelete.shtml
There are a number of links to secure "shredder" programs.
SysInternals is always a good and safe bet.  I have used a number of their apps.

I personally favor the Eraser, a freeware application that is not only small but very easy to use as well. In addition, it features several shredding methods ranging from the US. Department of Defence standards. Eraser is for sure extremely secure. Eraser can be downloaded from here: http://www.tolvanen.com/eraser/

Greetings, basskozz !

Use File Shredder
http://www.handybits.com/shredder.htm

Securely wiping files - you can configure File Shredder to overwrite a file data with random information up to 15 times, so it is impossible to recover the original data.  And it is free and simple to use.

Best wishes!
