Wipe MFT taking forever


Recommended Posts


On my 3.20 GHZ, 6.0GB RAM desktop PC, wiping MFT free space seems to be taking forever. When I run CCleaner without the MFT , free disk space gets overwritten fairly quickly. When I Ccleaner run it on my laptop, the MFT wiping only takes a couple minutes, notably less than the hour or so to wipe the free space. Meanwhile, on my desktop PC, I've been wiping MFT space for 27 hours and it's only at 10%. 

Why would wiping MFT on my computer take longer than wiping the free disk space without it? Doesn't the MFT just consist of some names and info, not actual content? So confusing. 

Any ideas on how to expedite this MFT wipe?
