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.

Depending on the settings or features you use, they may contain all kinds of additional information that you may not want shared outside your home or company.
