Mireth Technology Corp. has released version 5.7 of ShredIt X, its simple to use file shredder and hard drive cleaner software for Mac OS X. Version 5.7 adds a scheduled freespace shredding feature.
“When you’re editing a sensitive document, you want to make sure you clean up all the versions of the document, including fragments stored in work files created by your word processor and that are eventually allocated to free space. Scheduled free space shredding is a painless way of erasing the data that gets sent to free space, but that you’d prefer to shred if you could,” said Donna Johnson, President of Mireth Technology.
ShredIt is the easy-to-use file shredder for Mac OS X that shreds anything so the data can’t be recovered. It can be used to erase files, folders, disk free space, previously deleted files, hard drives, external drives, network drives and CD-RWs. ShredIt comes with a wide range of features, including built in safety features along with advanced shredding features such as, government standards compliance and a configurable overwrite pattern.
ShredIt X is available for immediate download, or on CD-ROM, starting at $19.95. Registered users of previous versions of ShredIt X can upgrade for free. Educational pricing and volume discounts are available. ShredIt X runs on Mac OS X. ShredIt is also available for Mac OS 7, Mac OS 8, Mac OS9, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows ME, Windows NT and Windows XP.
