Recently released was Novasoft and Phizzy's File Shreadder. I previously made (with Firespell) a file deleter call File Destroyer. And now, to fight back, here is FD2. Formerly known as File Destroyer 2 - The Tale of the Un-Deletable File.

-Deletion list of up to 20
-11 overwrights
-Overwrights with random CHARACTERS not numbers or letters

Made by: Tyscorp, Firespelly(Glockenspiel)

A bit petty, don't you think?

Sorry to sound nooby, but when people say "rewrites the file up to 10 times!!!" etc, surely just writing over it once with a line of 0s does the trick?

Either way im sticking with Shredder, which i got off the internet and builds itself in the the windows right click menu. Nice and easy.

I was under the impression you need to rewrite it 11 times.

Why don't we just do 20 and be safe ~_~

"Much better deletion than File Shredders"

Lol, firespell... You don't have a fucking clue how File Shredder even works you silly litte plonker. Do you have evidence to back this claim up?

Not that I care, really, I think it's cute you're trying to 'outdo' me

@Circy: Yes. Lol.
@Nick: You can reverse it.
@Pixeltheif: I tried 20 but FD2 keeps freezing.
@Phizzy [Erectionprods]: syjhjgf!!!111oneoneone???
@NovaSoft: There was no evidence so I removed it.

If it can be reversed, where is the data of what it originally was kept?
Posted by Nova Soft 12th August, 2006

Lol, good boy Tyscorpİ... I wasn't bothered really

Doesn't Windows already have a secure delete of some sort? The family PC seems to have it on the recycle bin menu.

Oh, by the way...

-Overwrights with random CHARACTERS not numbers or letters

If that was aimed at File Shredder, it actually did have a random character overwrite feature (that's what ASCII is). I get the feeling you n00bs never actually tried File Shredder.

Overwriting 10 times makes no sense. If you know how a hard disk works, you'd know that overwriting it with random data once would be enough.

The thing is, there are tiny magnets all over a hard disk, all either pointing one way for 1 and another way for 0. Set these magnets to something random (eg. overwriting it) and they're gone. GONE.

Oh, and jealous of Novasoft, aren't we? Pfft. Where and why's there "competition"? Hoping you can do better, because someone randomly posted an old project, thinking he did it because he wants to 'own' you?

What's an overwright btw?

@Jimmy: that just skips the recycle bin and deletes the file. It can still be recovered with certain apps, unless you use a file shredder.

It is possible to recover file overwritten.
