    Alternate File Shredder is Free, Open Source. It is fairly extensive in its method options, though I don't notice particular named techniques. Extra nice.. logging capability. It will shred files & folders letting you choose the number of times you want to overwrite. Those who would like to use standardized named techniques may prefer Eraser program. Many people may want to overwrite an entire disk drive & this program doesn't provide an "easy button" to do so, however, programs KillDisk & Hardwipe do.

    It's not a complicated piece of software, all of these shredders accomplish the same thing relatively similarly. I would go with this one over the others simply because it supports wiping of files with unusual symbols or non-US characters in the file or path, which none of the other wipers I've tried did.
