Does ccleaner make your files unrecoverable when deleting files or recycle bins with ccleaner or do you need to wipe free space to make files unrecoverable

Options/Settings/Secure Deletion/Secure File deletion/Simple Overwrite will tell CC to overwrite (almost) all files on deletion, making them unrecoverable. To overwrite files previously (unsecurely) deleted you will need to run Wipe Free Space.
