FileShredder Mac App Store User Reviews Update

Macbook Air ★★★★★
by Ezio Auditore_09 (Poland) – Version 1.1 – 25 May 2016
Great app to delate, destroy junk files from the recycle bin.

Great app ★★★★★
by trayNTP (United States) – Version 1.1 – 22 May 2016
To gauge progress, I recommend watching both the numerical countdown on the app’s icon AND the file size displayed in Finder for each individual file. It’s very satisfying to see a 500MB file, for example, shrink down to 400, 300, 200, 50MB, before it vanishes. Without a progress bar built into the app, that’s the best way to do it to satisfy your need to know if the app is actually performing, and how fast.

Muy útil!!! ★★★★★
by Altvisio (Spain) – Version 1.1 – 17 May 2016
Recomiendo a todo!

I recommend to all! ]

It seems to work – Worth the price ★★★★
by DonnaDiane (United States) – Version 1.1 – 14 May 2016
It is easy to use and setup. I assume it’s doing what it says, theres no way to tell or even a little notice that the file was erased. I think it would “feel” more substantial if there was some animation that could be turned on.

Fast and efficient ★★★★★
by sethfromgb (United Kingdom) – Version 1.1 – 26 April 2016
Have tried several file shredders. This one is easy and fast to use (simply drag files or folder over icon).

Works Great ★★★★★
by J-Chester12 (United States) – Version 1.1 – 17 April 2016
All I can say is it seems to work great. It’s an app that I’m sure is needed by most every one at such an affordable price!

Excellent app for deleting files! ★★★★★
by Eddie B68 (United States) – Version 1.1 – 11 April 2016
I don’t write many reviews but felt compelled to given how much use I have gotten out of this excellent app. The app is very simple and does exactly what it says. It is an essential app that I always make sure I have installed. If you want a more secure means to delete sensitive data then this app is for you.

Wonderful, but please remove App Store Log in for USB Drive Useage ★★★★★
by Iamautocrat (United States) – Version 1.1 – 19 March 2016
For what the application does, this application does it very well. I really recommend secure shredding files, though.
One suggestion I would add, though – Devs, make this app USB-useage without having to log in to the App Store. Annoying to have to log in every time I want to use it on another mac computer for personal use.
[ VT: Sorry, the log-in prompt is required for anti-piracy whenever running on a new computer. ]

Brilliant. ★★★★★
by Mewie47 (United Kingdom) – Version 1.1 – 10 March 2016
Tried many different kinds of apps for gettting rid of my unwanted files permantely , and this one is the best by a very long run.
Was so glad to find it, would recommend it to anyone.

You Can Buy This App Without Any Doubts. ★★★★★
by Nuserpentus (United States) – Version 1.1 – 5 March 2016
I had doubts, but I did read quite a few reviews here in the app store and elsewhere. I then took a chance on it, and I’ve been nothing but VERY satisfied with it. No glitches. No hangups. No bugs. No downsides whatsoever. It’s a splendidly elegant gadget which functions like a precision timepiece. VERY worth the price. You won’t regret the purchase.

Works Great ★★★★
by Ol Mukie (United States) – Version 1.1 – 23 February 2016
I did a little research before downloading this App. Reviews were good, so I’ve given it a try. It works just fine and seems to be fairly fast.

SUPER FILE ERASER!!!!!!!!!!!! ★★★★★
by Jettleggs (United States) – Version 1.1 – 7 February 2016
This app has all of the bells and whistles that you would expect of a superior file shredder. Have tried other products and found this app to be nothing but top level.
If you are looking for secure file deletion this is THE APP for you. Does everything in the app description effortlessly and thoroughly. I have found no downside to
this app, NO BUGS, NO PROBLEMS. VoidTech if I could give more than five stars, I would. This product is an absolute 5+ stars.

Bonne application ★★★★
by YvesTas (Canada) – Version 1.1 – 20 January 2016
Très bonne application et facile à utiliser. Vous n’avez qu’à glisser un ou plusieurs fichiers sur l’icône au bas (comme pour la corbeille) et tout est déchiqueté…
[ Google Translate:
Good application ★★★★
by YvesTas (Canada) – Version 1.1 – 20 January 2016
Very good application and easy to use. Simply drag one or more files on the icon at the bottom (like the trash) and everything is shredded … ]

Homer ★★★★★
by Ixion111 (Singapore) – Version 1.1 – 30 December 2015
Great app. does what it says.

Removed ‘recovered files’ brilliantly ★★★★★
by GPSurf (United Kingdom) – Version 1.1 – 2 December 2015
Got into a real problem with ‘recovered files’ clogging up my trash and causing it to stall and become usable. I wasted several hours trying to sort this problem. Found and used this excellent app to delete the recovered files and now everything works well. Save time (and money) by spending £3.99!

Works Smoothly adn Quickly ★★★★★
by SeedeeWho (United States) – Version 1.1 – 25 November 2015
FileShredder works smoothly and conveniently. It shreds selected, or all, files from the folder where they are filed or from wastebasket. Works very quickly with my solid state drive. No complaints. It may be overkill on an encrypted drive, but I like knowing trashed financial files ate completely gone, even if someone gets hold of my computer account password. When I move a file to a backup drive and put that drive in the safe-deposit box, I want to know that is the only place it is at. I shred paper copies, why would I want to do otherwise with digital copies?

Works Great ★★★★★
by Bullwraith (United States) – Version 1.1 – 25 November 2015
It does what it is advertised to do and does it smoothly and unobtrusively. I highly recommend it.

Essential ★★★★★
by daedw (United Kingdom) – Version 1.1 – 25 November 2015
Now that El Capitan has pretty well messed things up, including omitting ‘secure empty trash’ this gem of an app is essential for anyone concerned with the security of their files.

Simple et efficace ★★★★
by O-Russey (France) – Version 1.1 – 26 October 2015
Parfait pour un usage non professionnel.
[ Google Translate:
Simple and effective ★★★★
by O-Russey (France) – Version 1.1 – 26 October 2015
Perfect for non-professional use. ]

Does Exactly What it Says ★★★★★
by BicycleNut (Australia) – Version 1.1 – 18 October 2015
The native secure trash takes forever to empty the trash. File Shredder does it in moments. Very simple and easy, very happy user.

Fast and Final ★★★★★
by pbbob (United States) – Version 1.1 – 15 October 2015
Works like a champ in OS 10.10.4 – except after you right click on a file, Shred and Secure Shred are down the menue another step under Services. Possibility that is a function forced by Yosemite.

Most disappointing ★
by Gwgw45 (United Kingdom) – Version 1.1 – 15 October 2015
Purchased this as I had some files I could not delete from Trash can. This, from its description appeared to fit the bill. Well it was useless, and just threw up an Error “An unexpected error occurred deleting the file(s). Please check the file permissions and ensure that the file(s) are not read-only or locked” Oh, an no the file was not read only or locked. Save your money, as this is not worth a place on my Mac even if it was free, let alone the cost I pad.
[ VT: Sounds like an OS bug, please contact us so we can help investigate. ]

Great, simple, effective app ★★★★★
by Kano383 (Switzerland) – Version 1.1 – 13 September 2015
Allows you to securely delete a file with several layers of over-write, in just a couple of clicks. Easy to use, simply great!

Superb app! ★★★★★
by TechnoLuva13! (United States) – Version 1.1 – 7 September 2015
Totally awesome app! I would highly recommend getting this! While the price could be a little cheaper, This is excellent!

Does exactly what it says on the tin ★★★★★
by Jim Kirkby (United Kingdom) – Version 1.1 – 29 July 2015
Being responsible for ISO27001 in our office, I make a point of clearing down data my own machine. Can’t fault it.

good tool ★★★★
by onfield123 (Spain) – Version 1.1 – 31 January 2015
Very useful and easy to work with. Fills a gap in Mac trasher, which is less useful than Windows, in fact it does not exist.
May be a confirmation screen would help.

Fantastic App ★★★★★
by Hollerinpot (United Kingdom) – Version 1.1 – 18 January 2015
I unwittingly moved a Time Machine Backup into my Trash & found I couldn’t delete it or anything else. This Folder containined over 400,000 folders & files and took up 69Mb of space.
I tried using the rm -rf command in Terminal but this didn’t work and Apple Tech Support said the only way to remove it was to do a factory reset of my iMac.
Before downloading this app I emailed the VoidTech Support Team who responded immediately & downloaded the app.
It took 2hrs but it removed it from my Trash folder completely!

Good App ★★★★
by Hazeus001 (Malaysia) – Version 1.1 – 23 December 2014
A competent app that does exactly as what it promises. Worth the buy.
