- 
-Shred can permanently erases files, Wipe erases folders and its directory tree. Deleted files and folders by Sparky Eraser can’t be recovered easily.

-Installation: 
- 
-   sudo apt-get update 
-   sudo apt-get install sparky-eraser

-If you do not need to run it as root, run it normally from the Menu-> Accessories-> Eraser
