Stormshield Data Shredder
- When you move files to the Windows recycle bin, and when you empty it, files are not really deleted from the hard disk. Stormshield Data Shredder makes it possible to permanently delete files and folders. This is an irreversible operation, the equivalent of a paper shredder.
- No IT maintenance tools will be able to retrieve deleted data.
Stormshield Data Shredder rewrites several times over the sectors of the hard disk on which deleted files are stored.
Stormshield Data Shredder must be used carefully, as shredded files will be irretrievably deleted from your workstation.
To irreversibly delete files or folders:
- Log in to your SDS Enterprise Enterprise account by double-clicking on the SDS Enterprise icon in the taskbar.
- Right-click on the file or folder you wish to delete and select Stormshield Data Security > Shred.
- Confirm the deletion.
You can also drag the files you want to delete and drop them on the Stormshield Data Shredder icon on your desktop.
