Shredit 4.9 for Macintosh has been released by Mireth Technology.

Shredit securely deletes files, folders and free disc space. It does this, the company says, by removing file contents from the hard disk. Normal Mac OS deletes remove only the file name from the directory, leaving the data intact.

New in this release is the Safe Place feature, which protects important documents from accidental deletion.

ShredIt for Macintosh costs $15. It can be ordered from Mireth's Web site. A free demo can be also be downloaded.
