Secure Deletion, File Shredding, on Windows, Linux, Mac

Updated: List of Great Windows and Mac Software.

Just discovered that Windows since XP comes with a command-line tool called “cipher”, which can be used to securely delete files. Shit. Why am i not told about this? I spent several hours when i need to do that in 2010. Updated: Secure Deletion, File Shredding, on Windows, Linux, Mac.

Question: What tools i can use to monitor network traffic? either build-in or 3rd-party. I like to have a graph view (e.g. as in Task Manager) but also nice are tool that lets me know detail, such as what IP/port that's incoming/outgoing. Command line is fine. Or even some tutorial. Thanks.

You can also use command line “netstat”. Or, if you want to sniff packets, install Wireshark.
