There are many reasons why you should use a file shredder when deleting files.
Did you know…
- Files that you have deleted or emptied from the recycle bin are merely hidden, marked as deleted but not really removed from your hard drive and can be recovered with widely available data recovery software.
- Reformatting your hard drive does not guarantee that your data is destroyed.
- Loaning, selling, or donating your computer without properly destroying sensitive data first is an invitation to identity theft and allows thieves to easily access your personal information.
- Using a public computer, whether at a library, internet cafe, school, university lab, or other public network without properly shredding your cookies (that can store login information) may put you at risk to unauthorized users being able to access your online accounts.

Likewise, you should also shred and destroy sensitive files and documents on your computer before you delete them so that they can not be recovered or restored by widely available data recovery programs.
