    Will Hard Disk Manager 14 wipe unallocated space, slack space and page file? Would deleted stuff remaining in these places slow down a pc or reduce its overall free space

    A wipe completely erases everything so it can never be recovered by any software something that a simple delete or formatting doesn't do but I don't think you gain any speed by doing so. Just like a registry cleaner of which there is no real proof that they increase speed.

    Does it wipe the page file and slack space? CCleaner doesn't apparently wipe the page file. I don't think registry cleaner are essential or of any use

    I've never used a Wipe but from reading about it that it erases everything, use it and it's all gone forever. I know that I used the app PhotoRec to recover a video on a flash drive but mistakenly searched my C: drive and it found thousands of pics from websites, adds, etc. It's all there just need the software to find it.
