I would chop your current run of CC, if you haven't already. Over 24 hours is too much. You may need to reboot to do this.
Look on your c drive for fairly large files with random names and no extension (I believe) created during the time you ran CC wipe free space. They are fillers created by CC and should be deleted.
Check how much free space you have. Can you archive any data, half a gig is nothing really. Run the Cleaner part of CC again, and check how much free space etc.
I would then run a defrag, the Windows offering is fine. Check free space, and post back here. You may need a second defrag.
I would not be in a hurry to run wipe free space at all. It is intended to overwrite old deleted data, and won't give you any more free space. Do not touch the Registry clean section of CC unless you're very sure of what you're doing.

I think Augeas has missed the point, which is that the feature does not terminate properly: Wipe Free Space gets stuck at ~97%, and one must press 'Cancel' to end it. After which, I am not sure that Wipe Free Space has done its job properly and what it has left lying around.

We haven't been able to reproduce the problem in house. if we can't reproduce it is very difficult to come up with a solution.
Would you be able to post more details about your system and version of CCleaner.
Are you able to reproduce this problem every time you run Wipe free space?
