    Hi Peop's

    I'm just trying out the new Privacy suite software and find that in the file shredder, if i select all the files in a folder, the folder is automatically selected for scrubbing as well, this was not the behaviour of version 7.xx where just the files were shredded and i could choose to shred or not the folder.

    This is a pain as i had a specific folder on my desktop i just right clicked and shredded the contents, now i kill the folder as well and so have to recreate it each time!

    Have i missed a setting somewhere or is this in fact broken.

    his post/s were removed by myself at his request - seems somebody may have been playing around at his PC with his username.

    Hello Welshgit,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Privacy Expert Suite (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/privacyexpert/).

    Current build of Acronis Privacy Expert Suite doesn't allow you to delete all the files in folder leaving the folder itself untouched. We have forwarded your notice to our Development Team and expect them to fix the problem soon.

    As a workaround you may navigte to the desired folder in Windows Explorer, select all the files and choose "Wipe with Acronis Privacy Expert Suite". This will wipe the files but will leave the folder.

    Thank you.
