Description:

✔ Immediate, secure file deleting.

Don't want to wait while you "Secure Delete" the entire trash just to wipe one critical file? Tired of sending files to the trash, then having to empty it? Paper Shredder is a beautifully-animated, dead-simple way to immediately Secure Delete files.

★ Drag-n-drop files onto the app window or the dock icon
★ Files visually feed into the shredder as the operation proceeds
★ Preference available for Dock-only mode (no window), so you can keep your workflow direct and unobstructed.
★ Option to secure delete using 1-pass, 7-pass, or 35-pass DoD-compliant Guttman secure delete algorithms.
★ Emergency 'Stop!' button in case you change your mind mid-shred
★ Other preferences help you fine-tune your experience: launch on login, "overwrite with zero" after deleting, and an optional history list.

With Paper Shredder, you know it's gone.

Satisfied with my trash cleaner - I bought this app a few days ago because I got tired of the trash bin that comes with the mac osx. It takes so long and I would have to wait hours for the files to get deleted and after purchasing this app my computer experience changed. I delete my files (big movie files) within minutes and I'm on way to my next task. Defenetly a must have.

Working well functionally, but sound not. - I bought this program for it's flexibility at securely deleting files on the Mac. To the best of my knowledge, it is functioning perfectly except I am not getting any sound from the program. I haven't tried to restore deleted files from it yet. Additionally, I feel that $6.99 is a little much for a one hit wonder, but then again $6.99 is the same price as a combo at McDonalds - not much to fuss about. Any comment from the developer about sound?

Hub*Apps delivers an excellent, fast & efficient App for deleting securelyow - I purchased this app almost 24 hours ago. However it was NOT my first choice. Just 48 hours ago I bought an app claiming to do exactly what PaperShredder actually does do. The 1st app worked on some smaller files but on the larger files or alias files it would not work at all. I went with my first choice for a few reasons. There were over 200 reviews compared to HubApps PaperShredder only have 9 reviews currently. Also PaperShredder was $3 more than the older more established app. So now I have two apps that do the same thing in some departments. However put them both on the same 35 pass Guttman secure erase or the 7 pass Dod secure pass and PaperShredder is 3x faster. Last but not least the format of the app is visually nicer than the other less expensive app that has been on the market for a year or so. It just goes to show you that you get what you pay for.

Review by Mad Mamma B

Happy Again - This is an update from an earlier review that I wrote about the app freezing up. Support was a great help in solving the problem of the app freezing up. All I had to do was reinstall. Seems to work just fine. I was impressed with the support team. They were very determined to make sure I was satisfied with the product. I look forward to seeking out more of their apps.
