Often times I look in my Windows XP Recycle Bin and see something I probably should have shredded rather than merely deleted.
If I'm not really (really) careful about what I'm doing, I'll "Restore" that sensitive file to some unknown place, intending to properly shred the darn thing.
Drat! Uh,... What was that filename again? And where is it now?
weeks (or months) later...
Damn! There's that super-sensitive file I wanted to shred! (heart attack) I hope nobody else saw it.
Sure would be handy if I could just shred that file directly from the recycle bin somehow.
