How many of you wipe free space of MFT?
« on: November 20, 2013, 11:53:00 AM »
I've used CCleaner for years.
I been meaning to run the Wipe MFT part of CCleaner for well, a long time.
Started it this AM and it states 55 minutes and MFT will be wiped.

Or just do this at night while I'm sleeping?
Or ignore as I've done for a long time?

I don't wipe free space either.  Not for normal use because it increases the time of a scan considerably.  I think I've only wiped free space once.  Didn't see any performance difference so I wondered why I did it?  Anyone else?  Should we BE wiping free space?
