The AVG File Shredder is a tool that permits you to erase your files irreversibly. This means that nobody will be able to restore and misuse any of your data. You have to remember that erasing your data using the File Shredder is a permanent task. Once you have shredded the data, you will not be in a position to recover it at any point in time.
When you delete a file or erase your hard drive using any of the “standard” tools, only the reference to the file’s data will be removed. There are several tools available to recover your deleted files. Here enters the File Shredder. The File Shredder is unique because it overwrites your files with meaningless data many times. And then, it deletes those files permanently. This special feature of the File Shredder prevents your sensitive data from being recovered or misused. Therefore, File Shredder is particularly useful when you donate or sell your hard drives/computers.
