Shredder (context menu)


New Member
Are there any apps that can provide a 'Shred' option to the right-click context menu? I'm currently using 7600 RTM build of Windows.

I was using Tune-Up Utilities for this and it was very useful as I could switch deletion methods on the fly depending on how sensitive the file that I wanted to delete was. However this one part of Tune-Up isn't functional yet. I know that I can delete files to the Recycle Bin and then shred them with CCleaner but I'd rather shred them immediately if possible. There are a lot of free shredding apps that I can launch and then manually choose which files to delete but they aren't ideal. Any suggestions?

I did find an older app called Acelogix System Tuneup that does allow right-click deletion but it's not free :(

On a side note, is there an alternative to the great 'Unlocker'. Seems not to work either but I read that this is more of a 64 bit problem, rather than specifically to with W7, ie it didn't work with Vista64 either. Cheers!
