Re: File Shredder - Some Items Can't Be Shredded

Hey there! So, I was using this file shredder, right? But here's the thing – it's telling me that some items can't be shredded. What's up with that? Has anyone else run into this? Any tips or tricks to make sure everything gets properly shredded? Appreciate the help, folks! Reels Saver

Re: File Shredder - Some Items Can't Be Shredded

I too am having this problem.

I am running McAfee LiveSave:-

Version: 1.13.209
Release Name: 16.0 R113
Affid: 1081
Language: EN-GB

I have been in touch with McAfee Support who said it might be a bug and that they would investigate and isssue a fix if it was a bug.

Seems we just have to wait and hope it will be fixed sometime.

Not really much help.

Re: File Shredder - Some Items Can't Be Shredded

The File Shredder might be encountering files in locations other than the Recycle Bin on your system. Consider running a comprehensive system scan to pinpoint any files that cannot be shredded. To reset the file count, explore options within the File Shredder settings or the McAfee interface, or clear any error logs. Alternatively, try reinstalling or updating the McAfee software to potentially resolve  the issue.
