Full review

Setup

The installation process is quick and easy. Once the installation is complete the user is prompted with the main Evidence Smart screen which allows the user to pick individual categories to run an initial scan on. After the ‘Scan Now’ button is clicked the software will run the scan and display a results screen which allows the user to select which files to erase in the next step.

Effectiveness

Evidence Smart is capable of permanently removing a wide range of files and data from a computer. The software allows the user to shred unwanted files and erase any traces of sensitive information left behind on their computer. Evidence smart can empty your browser cache, browser history, cookies and can clean a number of Windows applications. Once the scanning process is completed the software provides the user with the option of selecting which files they would like to shred and which ones to exclude. The settings are all customizable and provide users with the power of choosing how they would like the software to boot up and also allows users to setup schedules to automate the process of shredding files.

Features

Erase cookies and Address Bar History: The address bar leaves traces of previously entered URL’s which can be a privacy concern. With Evidence Smart, you can remove all recently visited websites and clean all cookies to shield your personal information.

Scheduler: The software allows the user to create schedules to run scans on at specific times. The schedule is fully customizable and enables the software to automatically shred files at set times.

PS Resources conservation: Evidence Blaster removes unnecessary folders such as cache and temporary folders to boost system performance.

Ease of use

The software features a user-friendly interface that is incredibly easy to navigate for novice users. The graphical user interface is neatly organized into individual sections which can be accessed by clicking on the appropriate tab. While all the settings are easily customizable there are added support options within the software in the form of step-by-step wizards that guide the user throughout the configuration process of every individual setting feature. The schedule feature is also straight forward to configure with a setup wizard available for convenience.

Help & support

Customer support is available via the CheeseSoft website. There is a database of frequently asked questions available to users and a knowledge base containing thorough help files with instructions on how to effectively use the software. Customer support can be contacted directly via email or telephone support. A live chat support feature would be nice, but the other support options are quite efficient and more than make up for the lack of a live chat support option.

Overall

Evidence Smart is equipped with a range of powerful features that are fully customizable and automated. The software is straight forward to use and users can remove all traces of sensitive information from their computer in the click of a few buttons. There are very few drawbacks to this software as it works very effectively and has decent customer support options. As such, Evidence Smart is highly recommended for users of all experience levels.
