Hi. I've been trying to find a way to choose which files to shred in the recycle bin. I don't want to shred
the entire bin and to recover the files is not an option for me.. too many files and I do not want to
over write any updated files...

Also, for me, to simply delete the files in the recycle bin is not an option since it's an exposure because
the files could possibly be recovered by someone.

Anyone have a suggestion as to what I might do ?

many thanks

I just right-click the Recycle Bin icon, choose Open then as Wolfie said hold down the Ctrl key while randomly clicking files to delete. Or use the Shift key then click first and last to get a group or press Ctrl + A to select all. It's not a shredding as such but a permanent deletion which usually is sufficient for individual users of a computer.
