CCleaner adds Wipe Free Space
« on: April 06, 2009, 11:22:20 AM »
I upgraded my CCleaner software...I noted the addition of wipe free space.

I understand what this addition to the software will do.

Has anybody tried this?

It looks like it overwrites "free space" on the HDD to zeroes, but I am not completely sure. Here is a search result on their forum about it, and from what little I have read so far, I don't think I'll try it any time soon:
