    Sometimes when I get tired of my music folders I delete them in the recycling bin. I found out that AVG AS has a shredder. How is shredding different then recycling?? Also AVG AS is the only free one I know of.

    shredding (or wiping) is way to permanently get rid of files and make it difficult to recover them.

    I think there are a lot of free alternatives, one of them is Eraser.

    According to your sigs you use Spybot, look in the tools section there.

    Eraser and Clean Cache are two alternatives.

    Yes. Haven't used it myself though.
