What Users Say

Exactly what I was looking for

[ShredIt iOS] I did not have a problem with speed. Having wiped many drives in the past, I knew what to expect. I have about 110GB free right now and I took a little over an hour to do a four pass “Mireth” wipe.


ShredIt for Android was my salvation

The tool (Shredit – Android) was my salvation. Das Tool war meine Rettung Bei meiner Hardware, ein 7″-Tablett just für die Navigation angeschafft, fiel einfach so das GPS Modul aus. Ende der Navigation. Die Lösung zum Reanimieren des GPS war wie folgt: – GPS aus und Wechsel in den Flugzeug-Modus – Herunterfahren – Entfernen der SIM-Karte, (SD-Card war auch schon weg, sollte nur ein letzter Test werden und dann ShredIT und DHL ….) – Booten, Normalmodus ohne WLAN und starten von GPS Status – Test & Fix – In dem GPS-Tool “Reset GPS” … nach einigen Minuten kamen dann die esten Satelliten *tra-raaa*
