Securely Delete Files on Mac with new ProtectStar Data Shredder for macOS

Press Release ( - MIAMI - Sep 23, 2017 - ProtectStar today is pleased to announce the new security update v1.0.4 of Data Shredder for Mac, an important update to their new military grade data deletion tool for Mac. Data Shredder for Mac allows users to drag-and-drop files, folders, hard drives, (even external drives as usb sticks) to the app’s shredding area and securely wipe the data with just a click of the “Shred” button.

Using the same data shredding techniques as their popular Data Shredder for iOS, Data Shredder for Windows/Windows Server or the award-winning iShredder Android apps, ProtectStar’s Data Shredder for Mac securely erases files and folders using secure deletion algorithms that meet and exceed government, military, and industry standards. The macOS app eliminates any chance for data reconstruction, even by government agencies.

Data Shredder for Mac offers up to eighteen certified secure deletion methods. The Professional Edition offers 11 different data shredding methods, completely wiping all freespace and overwriting the storage area, to completely erase all of the stored data. The Military Edition offers 18 erasing methods in total, while also offering advanced deletion reports.

“Many users believe that when they delete files, that they’re gone for good. The truth is, the files can be recovered using any one of a number of recovery utilities. That’s due to the way computers ‘delete’ files. They don’t really remove the data, they simply mark the files as deleted,” says Chris Bohn, CEO of ProtectStar. “Files aren’t gone until that storage space is wiped using secure deletion methods. Data Shredder for Mac securely wipes the ‘deleted’ files using patented security standards, making it impossible to recover any deleted data.”

Data Shredder for Mac is the minimalist in military grade deletion and it is one of the easiest to use, yet most secure ways available to completely erase files from any Mac drive, allowing users to remain secure in the knowledge their data can never be recovered by anyone. Drag-and-drop, and press a button. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
