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.

@PAFuser: DotNET apps tend to reflect the underlying OS bitness, unless instructed otherwise.

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

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."

v2.3

Note that the context menu entry for WipeFile does not seem to work. It enables a 'wipefile' into the right click menu ok, but you expect that when you highlight a file or folder and use that option, WipeFile will open and erase what you have selected (like CyberShredder does). WipeFile opens, but you then have to drag the file/folder into the window manually and start the erase.

As of v2.0, some features are now only available in the new Pro version.
