I am uncertain what this utility does that Permanent Eraser (http://www.edenwaith.com/products/permanent%20eraser/) does not.

PE, implements the Gutmann Method, e.g., overwrites your data thirty-five times, scrambles the original file name, and truncating the file size to nothing before Permanent Eraser finally unlinks it from the system.

And oh yeah, it is free.

So how is Paper Shredder better?
