that fully wiping the $MFT on a NTFS drive is a feature being worked on at Piriform.
How will the method work?
Microsoft's own wiping tool SDelete does not do it.
The reason that SDelete does not securely delete file names when cleaning disk free space is that deleting them would require direct manipulation of directory structures. Directory structures can have free space containing deleted file names, but the free directory space is not available for allocation to other files. Hence, SDelete has no way of allocating this free space so that it can securely overwrite it.
