My advice- avoid anything that comes from this developer, all·their products are mediocre and ad-ware-ridden.

Win32/Somoto.A ... potentially unwanted application

After seeing the Shoddy "helpfile" (which can be disabled) & the desktop Icon
with "Donate" on it..... All-in-All .... So "Un-professional"

I didn't check for files or any reg keys which may have been
Generated or Altered. Nor did i test shredding capabilities.
I Rolled my sys back to before I tested this App.

You want a shredder..?? Get the BEST..!!
No Nonsense & Highly configurable.. & F/w

Update - using much less memory and author is prompt in trying to fix bugs when they occur. (5 to offset prev rating)

After approximately 10 minutes it was using about 44,000K of memory ... seems a bit steep for what it does. If all my running programs used 10 times as much memory as they should my computer would come to near a dead crawl. Doubt I'll be using it on a regular basis because I have better use for the memory. I have other programs that use less memory and perform multi-pass random character write and deletion of files I need to delete at my request.

Same here! app works great and hoping forward to trying out future versions. Right click and movable icons a re defenitely a must have for next releases

nice free ap. Would be nicer if I could make the icon smaller and/or relocate it to a different area/corner of the screen as easily as possible in case one of my programs use the area where it usually sets up the "trash can". Maybe a future version will have a menu to wipe a file when file right-clicked.
