  1. Correction: The status is "broken" as per the project page: http://www.linux-ntfs.org/doku.php?id=ntfswipe -Idle
  2. This project has ntfswipe with the --mft option, but it doesn't appear to be functional: http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/ntfsprogs.htm It's a port from http://www.linux-ntfs.org Since there isn't a manpage for ntfswipe in the package, the status of the program is unclear. -Idle

    exFAT

    Recuva does not recognize the new exFAT format introduced in Vista. -Idle

Microsoft's own wiping tool SDelete does not do it. From: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb897443.aspx " 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. " -Idle
  5. If you want to wipe just the free space on the disk (after CCleaner has deleted the files you want deleted), Windows has a built-in program that can wipe all the free space on the drive: http://idle-administrivia.blogspot.com/200...on-windows.html Just remember to get everything done in CCleaner first, and empty your recycle bin! =) -Idle
