About Burn

No data security system would be complete without a way to destroy the
original versions of a file after they are encrypted. Burn provides exactly
that function. It is a drag-and-drop application under system 7. Files and
folders dragged onto the Burn icon will be overwritten a user selected
number of times with a user selected pattern, then renamed, then deleted.
Both data and resource forks are deleted.

A variety of options allow you to configure the application to exactly the
ease of use and security you need. No matter what options you select, your
trash will be far more secure than if you used Apple's built in trash

This application is not a replacement for the Macintosh Trash. You should
continue to drag unimportant documents and applications to the trash can.
When you drag a file to the Burn icon it will be irretrievably deleted.

System Requirements

This application requires System 7, about 200k of disk space, and 400k of
RAM. If you still use System 6 contact the author for a version compatible
with your operating system.

What's new in version 2.5

Fixed a bug where free space was not fully erased on volumes with more than
2 gigabytes of free space.

Fully tested and compatible with Mac OS 8.5 and the new Mac OS Extended file
