RightDelete is a simple but potentially very powerful secure file deletion application. It is used from the Explorer context menu or by dropping files onto or copying files and pasting them to a desktop shortcut link. As far as I know, it should run in all flavours of Windows.

File deletion is achieved using the US DoD 5220 compliant seven pass method, ie overwriting the file content with $00, $ff, $00, $ff, $00, $ff, random(256). At each overwrite, buffers are flushed to disk. In addition, the file is renamed at the start of the process and before final deletion using random file names. At the end of this process the file is then actually deleted from the disk.
