Delete your files securely on right click

Apparently I am on the right click menu this period.

You know that when you delete a file by sending it to the Recycle Bin, the file isn’t actually deleted.

So if you are one of those who want to keep things clean and secure, you might want to get rid off the files by deleting them in a secure way.

I’ve got two freeware for you that can do that from the right click menu.

First one is – download the program and install it…and that’s it. All you have to do is to right click on the file you want to be gone and gone will be.

Second one is one of the RegToy utilities. When you install RegToy, you’ll be able to add Secure delete to the right click menu

Personally, I like deleting with this one because I have more options and I can rename the files before deleting them for a better result.
