Mireth Technology has released a new version of ShredIt, bringing it to version 5.0. ShredIt is an electronic document shredder designed to delete files more completely than just putting files in the trash. The update now includes a Safe Place folder to minimize the accidental erasure of files. According to Mireth Technology:
Mireth Technology has released version 5.0 of ShredIt for Mac OS 8& 9.
A privacy utility, ShredIt is the electronic document shredder for Macintosh that securely deletes files, folders and disk free space. Throwing a file in the trash does not remove the file contents from the hard disk - it just removes the file name from the directory, leaving the data intact and vulnerable. What you threw away can be recovered by anyone with access to your computer - your roommate, a business associate, the thief who just emptied out your office. Donit risk throwing private and confidential data in the trash - securely delete it with ShredIt.
New in this release is the Safe Place (TM) feature which allows you to protect important documents from accidental shredding. For example, you could move your childis homework into a Safe Place folder so that it could not be accidentally shredded.
