The file shredder tool is difficult to use as it is hidden in the settings tab. Does anyone know if there is an easy way to use it ? You cant even easily shred multiple files at one time!

 

Not sure is something is wrong in my setup. Most other shredders allow you to right click on the file from file explorer to use it whereas Kasperskys requires you to dig into the tabs and browse to the file. You need to do this one at a time for each file too. 

 

Any help would be appreciated

Hello @SydneyGuy

Welcome!

You are not using the FS incorrectly. How you’ve found it to function is how it’s designed: To avoid accidentally deleting important files, you can select only one file or folder for deletion.

Regarding shredding “shred multiple files at the same time”, no, FS does not allowing for selecting multiples files or multiple folders, however, if all the files are in one folder, then the collected files could be shredded synchronously. 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Also, adding "File Shredder"  in the Windows Context Menu isn't possible,
Kaspersky doesn’t provide an option to modify "ShellEx.dll".
