shredder speed tests
have checked our Shred Agent for speed of wiping. It's really fast, for
instance, 1 Gb file gone in about 40 seconds as wiping speed was about 30 Mb
per second. How long did it take for simple Windows deletion to wipe
this file? About 0,2 seconds!
Windows is performing better?
It's simple. Windows just delete the reference of the file, keeping it's
content on a hard disk. What Shred Agent does is wiping. So file shredders
remove not just the reference to the file, but it's content. It will not be
possible to recover file after it was wiped. This will prevent information
leakages from your computer and network.
