Shredding files on logical Raid drives.

Can file shredders (like LSoft ZDelete) properly shred files on a logical drive on a Windows Server 2008 R2 system using a Hardware Raid controller (Dell PERC H700) configured for Raid 5?

I'm not looking to Wipe the whole drive(s), I want to shred individual files and have the system still work.

If not all shredders will work properly on logical raid drives, does anyone know one that will?

Start encrypting the disk.  If it's encrypted, there's no real need to "shred" files afterwards.

Thank You all for your responses.

andyalder picked up on that what I was concerned about was what sectors on the HDDs are rewritten by the eraser software when hardware raid devices and logical drives are involved.
