ShredIt comes with a wide range of features, including built in safety features along with advanced shredding features such as, government standards compliance and a configurable overwrite pattern.

Users who want to erase the contents of a hard drive before disposing of a computer need an easy way to erase the drive so that they can do the job successfully.
