How to Shred Files Using Spirion

You can use one of the two Digital Shredders available under the Tools tab on the Spirion User Interface:

File Shredder: Deletes any file/s located on your computer or removable drives.

System Cleanup: Allows you to shred all of the browser temporary files (Internet Explorer and Firefox), as well as all files in your computer's Recycle Bins.

Alternatively, you can delete files/folders from the location they reside at without launching Spirion:

  1. Locate the file/folder on your computer's hard drive or removable drive that you want to delete permanently.
  2. Right-click on the file/folder to open the pop-up menu.


  3. Select Spirion on the pop-up menu.
  4. Click Shred.


  5. Click Yes to confirm that you want to shred the file/folder.

    Congratulations! You have successfully shredded a file using Spirion!
