     TFS overwrites every character in a file with random data (this data is specified by the user) up to several hundred times before randomly renaming the file and then killing it. This means that it can't be recovered from your hard drive - it really is a secure delete! As every character is overwritten, it's secure, but a little slow. TFS can also scan for temp files and adds a right click context menu to your files. If you like this code, please vote or leave a message!! Thanks.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
