I have been reading this forum for some time but recently joined. I am hoping you guys can give me a steer here. I am looking at "tracks" left behind after wiping/shredding free space on my drives, and specifically USB drives. Whether or not I use CCleaner's wipe features or "PGP shred free space" I still see the file names of the deleted and wiped data. The data itself is unrecoverable as per Recuva and other recovery tools. Unfortunately, sometimes file/document names still being seen could be an issue for security. So the question is this: what method/program would you recommend to wipe/shred free space that would anonymize the deleted file names? I don't care what the program calls them - tmp, zero out, or whatever as long as the original file names are permanently unavailable. Obviously, wiping the entire drive does what I am describing but I don't want to have to do that when all I need is a wipe/shred of free space. Most of the drive space contains virtual volumes so I am ONLY concerned about the free space outside of the encrypted volumes. I would like a program that will "play nice" with the EXFAT filesystem. Not a requirement, but its on my XMAS list if you know what I mean. From reading on these forums it seems that some of you might be able to help me with my concerns. It may be a day or so until I get back since I am going out of town. Hope to be back tomorrow but it might be Monday. Thanks in advance.
