If you formatted the drive - it is clean. What shred refers to is to deletion. Deleted files and folders are not actually removed. Deletion does not destroy the data itself. It only flips the flag in a file table that this particular data sector is no longer needed and can be overwritten should the drive volume get low. If the drive volume never gets low then the data which is not overwritten remains there perpetually and can be recovered. Byte 0 in FAT table: value 0x00 = unallocated and 0xE5 = deleted
