    Securely wiping free space in Windows 7?

    Hi..

    I really need a tool like http://eraser.heidi.ie/ that will work and work properly in Windows 7... if it does not have a working "wipe free space" feature, then its of no use to me

    Thanks!

    CCLeaner has the 'wipe free space' tool.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Great! I wonder... do you know what method it uses? *goes hunting*

    Also... I can't see a way to configure it to clean partitions other than the boot drive.

    The mods on the forums say it's not working with Win 7 x64, and anyway, I don't trust it now they have the new UI in version 6, it's too easy to delete stuff by mistake.

    CCleaner has good, secure wipe methods in the settings... and the option to do all volumes at once.. awesome.
