Free File Wiper v1.91

Vista / Win10 / Win7 / Win8 / WinXP
Free File Wiper is a tool that can securely delete files in Windows.

When you delete a file in Windows, it is not technically "gone" immediately. Instead, the operating system knows it can overwrite the area of the disk where that particular file was stored, later on.

For this reason, it is very easy to recover most files deleted in Windows. This can put your privacy at risk.

Free File Wiper will destroy the file by overwriting it using random patterns. This means that only random data will be recovered, not the file that was deleted. The software supports four different wipe methods, which range from 1 single pass, to 7 passes.

The software is technically freeware but does have a nag at the start asking you to donate.
