Good idea, especially the idea of being able to securely delete ones files.

I rarely comment on Shareware pricing but US$24.95 for this simple prefpane is patently not going to sell many copies.

Surely this is a $5.00 shareware item.

God loves a trier.

Typically such utilities (for example compost which does not compress trash) are in the $20 range. If price is an issue just contact us and we will do whatever we can to make the software affordable for you.
