1-abc.net File Washer protects your digital privacy by employing different methods in order to remove the contents of files that you want to delete from your hard disk. This is an efficient way of preventing some applications from recovering deleted files and folders.

1-abc.net File Washer comes with a professional-looking interface. The program doesn't require a high level of PC knowledge from its users. Just add the files and folders that you want to delete, choose the erasing method, and click on Delete Files! button. The deletion might take a while, depending on the size of files to be deleted and the erasing method. When I tried to delete files of 200KB, I had to wait for almost a minute.

The program employs the well-known Gutman Method in order to delete the files. These files will be overwritten with specific bytes patterns for up to 35 times. This guarantees that no application will be able to recover that data.

I strongly recommend 1-abc.net File Washer to any users that are concerned about their digital privacy and don’t want specific pieces of information to get in the wrong hands.
