Trash Shredder Update From Northern Softworks

Northern Softworks has released an update for Trash X, bringing it to version 1.1. Trash X is a trashcan utility designed for shredding and deleting files. The update includes improved secure shredding with drag and drop support. According to Northern Softworks:

Northern Softworks today announced the release of version 1.1 of Trash X, its new shareware Trashcan for the Mac OS X desktop.

Trash X is a fully functional trashcan for Mac OS X. Extremely simple to use, it functions just like the classic Mac OS Trashcan. It also features numerous functions for the power user. You can use it to instantly delete or shred file and folders without sending them to the trash. You can use it to empty or shred trash only on selected disks.

Version 1.1 of Trash X offers secure deletion (shredding) of files and folders. Items to be shredded are overwritten multiple times and then deleted. This feature makes shredded files extremely difficult to resurrect. Files and folders can be shredded via drag and drop. Trash X can also shred the contents of the trash on all or selected disks instead of just emptying it.

You can find more information about the Trash X update at the Northern Softworks Web site. Trash X 1.1 is available for US$6.95.
