NorthStar's File Monster is to files as the Cookie Monster is to cookies. It doesn't just erase files from your system, it obliterates them. Normal file deletion merely tells the system not to recognize the file, but the information still exists, waiting to be discovered by those savvy enough to find it. File Monster actually overwrites deleted files so they absolutely cannot be recovered, leaving no trace.

A word of caution when using this program. Be sure you want to delete the selected file(s), because once you do, they aren't coming back. File Monster devours your deleted files.
