Description:

Hi

This is my Servicemenu. It use wipe to destroy files and directories.

Wipe:

Secure file deletion
Recovery of supposedly erased data from magnetic media is easier than what
many people would like to believe. A technique called Magnetic Force
Microscopy (MFM) allows any moderately funded opponent to recover the last
two or three layers of data written to disk. Wipe repeatedly writes special
patterns to the files to be destroyed, using the fsync() call and/or the
O_SYNC bit to force disk access.

INSTALL:

Just copy the file to
~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus

The following languages are supported: en,fr,br,it,de,es

It use the command: wipe -r -f

I hope it is useful.

Wipe has only full effect on ext2!

Write Comments please.

 A good idea, but...

Surely a good idea and nice that you made your little tool available.

But the problem is, that with modern journaled file systems like ReiserFS, EXT3, JFS and others, tools like wipe or shred offer only limited security.

Wipe or shred can do a good job on EXT2 file systems, but if one uses a journaled file system the best thing is to use an encrypted file system.

I really don´t want to offend, just wanted to say, if one really needs secure deletion encrypted file systems are the only road to go.

 network file system

don't forget, that in corporations (and hopeful in your private envirenment) there are usually lot's of backups around. So it will take some time till a wiped out file is not "recoverable" any more. IMHO it's not a technical problem but an organizational one.

There's a little error in the Italian Action Name:
Name[it]=Distrugg
should be:
Name[it]=Distruggi

 wasn't this "shred"?

Wasn't this a standard feature of KDE back in the 2.x days? I wonder why it got removed.

the shredder is still there and part of kgpg. You can find it under Options->Misc. There is a button called "Install shredder"
It is off by default, because it is not 100% secure on all filesystems, as stated above.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
