    Your subject says memory wiper, but your body says file..

    SDelete implements the Department of Defense clearing and sanitizing
    standard DOD 5220.22-M, to give you confidence that once deleted with
    SDelete, your file data is gone forever.

    Subject: HD memory wiper/shredder

    Hey all.

    I recently had a friend ask me if I knew of any real good file
    shredders/wipers. He wants to be able to securely shred a file used
    for an encryption key after it is no longer needed at that location.
    I couldn't think of any off of the top of my head but I figured this
    list would be a great place to start. So does anyone know of a good
    shredder to use for this purpose? Freeware would be preferred.

    thanks,
    Kinnell
