Arturo,

Since there are already shedding applications on the market, I did not 
want to add that functionality to AES Crypt. Further, shredding can give 
a false sense of security.  On solid state drives, including those 
common in modern laptops, as well as USB drives, etc. "shredding" is 
virtually impossible, in fact.  The reason is that each time you write 
to storage, it writes to a different location.  This is called "wear 
leveling".  So, trying to "shred" does absolutely nothing more than wear 
out the disk faster.

Paul
