Shredo allows users to securely and permanently delete files, folders and external volumes' contents to keep information secure and impossible for anyone to retrieve. Depending on security level and speed, it gets the job done with 3 different data erase algorithms: 1-pass, 7-pass and 35-pass

The reason this was removed from macOS is that it is infeasible to do in flash storage (SSD) based on the way the hardware works. How does Shredo solve this problem?

@kylewdavidson That's what I thought, thank you so much. Given the fact that almost all modern Macs run SSDs, I don't think this software will be too handy.

This is very interesting. Is the deletion process accomplished via the built in srm command?

By the way, Mac OS X comes with the command line tool srm which accomplishes this for free.

@chrisshort you are right. But it's not that easy to use for non-programmers in Terminal and srm is no longer available in macOS Sierra.

@mymixapps Thanks for pointing this out. I wonder why Apple is removing that...
