What others already said. MUCH. TOO. EXPENSIVE. For what it does. Please correct that and you may expect some business.

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.
