Cleaning & Wipping

Recommended Posts

Can you make this program Cleaning & Wipping Unused space & Master File Table Records with secure deletion.

And add new option in the setting to add delete file in shell explorer to delete files without open the program and select it to delete it.

Becuase There is a secure deletion in the setting menu that delete the selected files only but not Unused space & Master File Table Records.

THANKS

Great idea. I have another program "Eraser" that wipes my 'free space' but I would much rather use CCleaner. Adding 'wipe free space' - maybe as a scheduled activity (hint, hint) would be totally awesome.

No, I don't want this, it's not what CC does. There are enough specialised disk wipers without adding code to a mercifully slim progam (but creeping up - software has human characteristics, starts off slender and desirable and then gradually goes fat and lazy).

 

Wiping unused space must be one of the world's most useless occupations. How often do people run these disk wipers? I've run one in about 15 years. As for removing deleted entries in the MFT, from what I know of the MFT, the way it allocates filenames, the MFT zone, it's mirror image, and Windows critical dependence on it, I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. You only see deleted entries when you run something like Recuva, anyway.

I respect your opinion but :

 

I have tried Recuva then wipping Unused space with Other Program and open Recuva again then i saw the files is Unrecoverable.

 

Attention! When a disk is wiped, all previously deleted files cannot be restored! No Windows or third-party data recovery utility can do this!

 

So Cleaning & Wipping Unused space & Master File Table Records it's a Usefull for who want to Sell his hard disk or his computer to someone else, to be sure that his data will not be Restored Anymore.

Yes, and that's the one occasion when I used a disk wiper, when I passed on an older PC. I was a little tongue in cheek, wiping unused space is a waste of time. What needs wiping is used space. Anyway, I would prefer CC to be left alone and some other independent wiper to be used, on the rare occasion when it's needed.

CCleaner it's Primary mission is to Clean HDD

So it's can do like this stuff without any problems.

Anyway it's just a Suggestions.

Well, your suggestions are as good as mine. If I may say so CC is a software cleaner, not a HDD cleaner.

Just want to support the suggesion of leecherman - thanks for CCleaner, but the function to wipe the free space would be really great - there R a lot of disk-wipers out there, but many of them work very slow and are not really to have faith in; this function in the known fast&serious CCleaner-manner is a must.

@ leecherman

 

Recuva has the option to securely delete files it has found (i.e. files that have been deleted), so having the functionality in CCleaner may be redundant. However, there may be some glitches with this option not deleting all files (eve if they aren't protected by being resident in the MFT).

 

My point for this post is that Piriform already has a product that is supposed to do what you ask, but it doesn't seem to work. If you want this functionality from Piriform, you'd probably be better off working through the Recuva forum.

 

I'm really hoping Recuva becomes something that is more user-friendly than Secure Erase, but just as secure, too.
