It worked very fast for me. It extracted it into organized folders. Good app to have.

A simple but very useful extraction program.
A "must have" in every portable collection!

WipeFile v2.4 Updated

Ennovy on 23 Apr 2014
  • 920KB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by AlephX

WipeFile is a secure file and folder deletion utility, overwriting data to prevent later recovery. Although most users will only require a standard 1-pass wipe, the program supports 14 different wipe methods, including high-security military standards. Higher security settings involve overwriting the data multiple times, which is dramatically slower.

For full drive wiping, the developer makes available an also portable WipeDisk program.

Category:
System Requirements: Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application Folder
Dependencies: Win 95/98 requires MSVBVM60.DLL and MSCOMCTL.OCX to run. The former should be available by default on WinME, 2K and XP.
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the RAR package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch WipeFile.exe.
What's new? The changelog for this application is available in the German version:

This utility has simple and nice interface but I found a bug: it can't delete a file with asian name (eg: japanese). I got warning message: "Not all files / directories have been removed."

Ganamyde on 2013-09-23 13:27

Your right, it doesn't seem to support Unicode.
Sucks :/

mik.y on 2014-02-17 09:30

Yeah, unicode support must be one of the first features in such a app:/

Woked fine on my USB storage drive-Hallers version at portable apps better,cleans up itself,slick program.

SYSTEM on 2012-09-26 14:31

@rodger123: This "worse" version only leaves files in Internet Explorer's cache. IMHO, the overhead caused by PortableApps.com Launcher is not worth it.
