36 Free File Shredder Software Programs

A List of the Best Completely Free File Shredder Software Tools

File shredder programs are software tools that permanently delete files on your computer. As you may or may not know, deleting a file just hides it from the operating system. It isn't really gone until that same space is overwritten by something else.

This is exactly what a file shredder does - it overwrites selected files using a specified data sanitization method, ensuring that's it can never be un-deleted with a file recovery program.

Important: See my How to Wipe a Hard Drive tutorial if you're interested in erasing an entire hard drive, a great step before selling or recycling a computer. While some of the tools below can do that, that tutorial and the programs listed in my free data destruction programs list are better suited for that task.

Below is an updated list of the very best completely free file shredder software tools:

Browse for files and folders to add to the program or simply drag and drop them. The shredding method is simple to change and you can choose a custom number of passes before shredding anything.

Important: One thing that can be confusing about TweakNow SecureDelete is that there are two buttons with similar names: "Remove" and "Delete." The "Remove" button simply clears the file/folder from the application window without deleting the actual data. The "Delete" button does the actual deleting and should be clicked when you’re ready to shred the data.
