Please describe exactly what 'sensitive' means, related to the context that makes it sensitive. :-\

I think I will find something in sourceforge, but from my position the web is down.

I have to wait.
I tried metadata analyzer by Smart PC Solutions but adwcleaner detects three menaces...

I don't know exactly. Appear in Mouse post. But I suppose is sensible or privative information or information that third persons may use.
Usually are the metadata, but I don't know if Mouser includes something else.

Best Regards

I fail to see how mouser is involved here or in your request... :huh: he didn't even post in this thread (yet).

The term 'sensitive information' is IMHO too broad to be generalized into a 'simple tool', that's why I ask for context and more details. You haven't really clarified anything yet.

Something like cleanDocs I'm guessing.


Cheap Windows alternative: Remove Personal metadata from Files to Protect Your Privacy

Which is unfortunately very limited in what it will remove.

There's also MAT which supports a few formats.
