Looking for a file sanitizer for desktop

HP Recommended

I'd like to know if I can use the notebook file sanitizer and where to find it now?

 

Or if anyone has a alternate one they use?

 

Thanks!

Gord

If you can tell me where inside that tool the file sanitizer is I’ll give you as many kudos as I’m allowed. All I found it did was offer a windows password back up?!

Hi, @GDN1 

 

AFAIK, the HP file sanitizer plugin software only worked with the HP ProtectTools software which is not supported in W10.

 

I do not know of any file sanitizer software that has support for W10.

 

This model notebook has all of the programs that worked with W7 and ProtectTools...
