Doc Scrubber Review

Tina de Pierre
Removes potentially private data from Microsoft DOC files
A review of Doc Scrubber by Tina de Pierre

Documents created by Microsoft Word can unfortunately contain hidden or unwanted data embedded within the file and for those with the know-how, access data which you would otherwise not approve of sharing.

With Doc Scrubber, you can effectively 'scrub' or clear these documents of embedded data while maintaining the integrity of the original document. Some of the data included in Word files may be comments, links, recent saved data, last printed time and other metadata which is either unhelpful to the recipient or may open your office up to attacks.

In a default setting, Doc Scrubber will not overwrite the data of the original file, but rather provides you with an alternative document copy (whose filename includes a suffix) so that you may safely share it outside of the home or office.

Doc Scrubber also supports batch operations meaning it can clean several documents at once of unnecessary metadata.

Doc Scrubber is software which can open DOC and DOCX files.

Doc Scrubber is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from office software without restrictions. Doc Scrubber 1.2 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
