Jiiva releases AutoScrubber version 1.5. Now with visual feedback!
Beaverton, OR (May 21, 2004) Jiiva announces the release of
AutoScrubber 1.5. This release brings interactivity to a process

Deleting files is typically seen as a progress indicator when emptying
the trash. Now customers will know exactly when AutoScrubber is at work
securely erasing file fragments left behind by applications as they
occur as well as when the trash is emptied by enabling a system menu
icon that tilts left or right each time a file is erased.
Other enhancements to AutoScrubber include an updated list of built-in
configurations, improved support for multi-gigabyte files, speed
improvements, and greater interoperability with Norton Utilities.
AutoScrubber is an evolution is data security. Unlike Apple’s Secure
Empty Trash and other file erasers on the market, AutoScrubber catches
file fragments left behind by applications and deleted copies of
private files made by the operating system. These fragments and copied
files are left wide open on your hard drive for anyone with undelete or
recovery software to exploit. If you share your Mac with others or have
Macs in open places such as a lab, classroom, office, or cafe, you need
to protect the privacy of those using the machine. AutoScrubber works
on-the-fly to provide constant data security.
