    +1. That's a nice little utility. Similar to using an undelete app afa the user interface.

    Hi MilesA:

    I read the documentation for ShadowExplorer and can't find where it is relevant to file shredding. Am I missing something?

    Thanx

    What is the difference between System Restore and ShadowExplorer? I have Vista Home Premium and when I need to go back in time I just pick a restore point. I can see the advanage of seeing what is on the system and I guess from the features you can pick a file or folder that maybe got deleted and restore just that. I am interested in this and will add it after I do some research.Thank You.
    System restore will restore your whole computer shadow explorer lets you restore just the files you want. Similar to recover but it is part of Vista with a better user interface.

    Shadow Explorer is not for file shredding if you want to do that I recommend Glary Utilities.

    I use it myself The paid version is the same but gives you the option to schedule scans.
    If you use the one click option I would uncheck the option
    Tracks Eraser and use CCleaner for that As you may have to re-enter your passwords for sites again after Glary's.

    GSpot is a good program if you are having a problem playing a video file.
    Normal way to use it is to start the program and drag the file to it.
    I put it in a tools folder and don't move it, then add it to the send to menu.
    When you have a file you are unable to play send it to GSpot and it will search your computer for the codecs you need to play it and give you options to try.
    Get it from here.

    EDIT: Adding send to, to the send to menu is a quick way to do this.

    I think that was my all time favorite Leo Laporte tip/trick(at least he's the one I got it from.) You go into the folder above SendTo, right click the SendTo folder and click copy. Then go into the SendTo folder and click Paste. Rename the shortcut Send To SendTo. Now you can right click on any shortcut, go into Send To and click on Send To SendTo and it will be added. Neat sort of recursion.
