How to Scan Your Hard Drive for Deleted Files

Now you know how to shred files and free disk space. While shredding files is really quick (especially if you have one or two files to shred), shredding free space can take a long time. That’s why it’s best to shred free space only when there are deleted files that need to be wiped. Easy File Shredder can scan your hard drive for deleted files and let you know if there is a need to shred the free space or not. The program will display a list of detected deleted files, so that you will be able to decide whether you want to perform the shredding or not.

Scanning your hard drive for deleted files is easy:

  1. Launch Easy File Shredder and click on the Scan for Deleted Files icon
  2. Select the disk you want to scan and click on the Start Scanning button
  3. The disk you selected will be scanned for deleted files and you will see the list of recoverable files
