You cannot shred a file, if you are using an SSD. You might not be able to shred a file (completely), if you're using a Fusion Drive. Even if you're using an HDD, you might not be able to shred a file, if you're using a journaled HFS+. If you use APFS, you cannot shred a file. There is a very good reason why Apple removed "Secure Empty Trash" and the srm command line program from macOS, because they don't want to give their customers a false sense of security: shredding is probably impossible with modern devices and modern filesystems, and users should be aware that they are buying products from snake oil salesmen, if developers claim they can "shred" your files. Use File Vault 2 whole disk encryption instead and just delete/rm your files the normal way.

I have tried for three weeks and several emails to get support for this product and the good folks at Mireth have not replied to my emails. I am very disappointed in their lack of support. WHY THE HECK WON'T YOU GUYS ANSWER MY EMAILS? I'M USING THE SAME EMAIL ADDRESS I USED TO PURCHASE AND REGISTER SHREDIT! VERY FRUSTRATING!!!

Pretty much works perfect and the schedular is great you can leave it to do a free space wipe during the night while you sleep. Yeah good app and does what it says on the box. I tested it with some recovery software it does mess up recovery. You run this those files are really gone forever. BTW I see a unix command put here NEVER USE THIS COMMAND unless you know about unix. That one is a crazy command! :) I am not sure on OSX rm does a secure delete? Don't you need to pipe to a program like shred/gshred like on Linux/BSD?

Shredit seems to create as many 1.95gb files on your HD as it can before it even BEGINS to shred - this takes DAYS...! Isn't there any program which can do this faster and without reducing your HD space to 0?
