I had a 1 year subscription of File Shredded on my old laptop. Got a new laptop, running Vista 64.
Downloaded the "trial" version, and while testing it, discovered that no matter how many files I selected to shred via File Browsing, it would only load and shred about 6 files (may be based on total size?).

This is not the way it worked before, on my XP laptop.

Is this a limitation of the trial version, or possibly related to Vista 64?

If so, I probably won't purchase, as there are others out there without this limitation.

Please let me know if this restriction will be lifted if I purchase.

You might try running it under XP compatiblity mode (right-click executable - Properties - Compatibility). I couldn't find any info on trial version limitations other than the 30 day limit.
