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!!!
