UltraSentry Explorer/Microsoft Office integration

UltraSentry has a lot more to offer than just a file deletion utility. Download it today and check under the hood. Of particulate note is the General Configuration dialog. Users will find some very exciting features on this tab alone.

Explorer/MS Office Integration

Step 2: General Configuration Tab

Once you have clicked the configuration icon, you will be presented with the following dialog. Note that the General Configuration Tab is the subject of this powertip.

(2) Explorer Integration

There is a checkbox that allows the user to configure UltraSentry to be integrated with Explorer. When this is selected the user may right click on a file/directory name and select UltraSentry from the context menu to have the selected item deleted with the security level specified here in the Configuration dialog.

There are three predefined security levels available if this option is selected: DoD Level C, DoD Level D, and Shell Level.

Users can define their own custom security levels to be used in Explorer click on the Security tab in the Configuration dialog.

(3) Recycle Bin Integration

There is also a checkbox that allows the user to configure UltraSentry to be integrated into the context menu for the Recycle Bin. When this is selected the user may right click on the Recycle Bin and select UltraSentry from the context menu to have the contents of the Recycle Bin deleted with the security level specified here in the Configuration dialog.

The security level dropdown for the Recycle Bin configuration item works the same as the item for Explorer integration.

(4) Last but not least is the COM DLL add-on for Office 2003

There are two checkboxes associated with the COM Object DLL add-on for Microsoft Office 2003. This function allows the user to not only securely delete the recently opened documents list from within Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel, but also to enables secure file deletion from within the applications themselves. Users may select the item to configure this for either Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel (or both) as desired.

Once enabled, UltraSentry will add an icon on the toolbar of the applicable program. Clicking on the icon will display the recently opened document list and users may securely delete any and all history of the document or the file itself.

Restore Defaults

Note that UltraSentry is highly configurable. Should you desire to return to the original installation settings of the program, simply click the Restore Defaults button on any of the configuration dialog tabs. This action will restore UltraSentry to the initial state the program was in upon initial installation and any and all custom settings will be lost.
