Macrorit Data Wiper is safe disk management software to wipe hard drive free space securely, although it's called free space by Microsoft in Windows, it's not real free with nothing in it, without wiping disk space, records in free space might be recovered by pros, so it's necessary to wipe those records to protect your privacy and security.

2. Have a quick view, you get steps 1,2,3 in the windows, so we first choose wipe method: Free space only /Entire Drive:(All data will be erased); we choose "Free space only"
3. Then we choose wipe security level from Security.
4. Then we select one partition to Wipe
5. Wipe Now
Then Wiper will do the operation securely, although it's the screenshot in Windows 10, you can still use Wiper on Windows 7, 8.
Note: if you choose Entire Drive, it will erase entire hard drive for Free, since Wiper is Wipe Entire Drive Freeware, you can use this free software to wipe computer instead of delete entire hard drive to free up space on any partitions.
Wipe free space in SSD disk is another key feature Wiper has, SSD is now widely used both on laptop and desktop computers, most of which use SSD to run system, Data Wiper, with those functions, helps you to have a clean system manager.
Steps are the same when wiping SSD free space, you don't have to choose SSD or HDD, Wiper will do the job for you as a default program.
Another key feature of Wiper is to wipe empty temp folders in Windows 10.
Free space in Wiper means all free space in one partition, no matter it's the free space you can see in the partition or the free space in any empty temp folders,
Wiper will wipe them all when you select Free space only.

Data Wiper 4.0 is added with a new function: Wipe Recycle Bin, which is able to wipe deleted files clean so that no data recovery programs can get data from recycle, besides, this update added one more type of wipe: Peter Gutmann’s algorithm, which is a 35-pass overwriting method, works both on HDD and SSD, but we wouldn’t recommend to use this on SSD, it’s just too much for solid state drives, 35-pass overwriting on SSD Drives is definitively overkill it.
If you’ve already emptied the recycle bin, or deleted files with Shift button pressed, you can still use the Wipe Free Space function to wipe deleted data’s traces and tracks on your hard drive left for data recovery software
Normal deletion or the conventional way of deleting a file is just to press the Delete button on the keyword, will keep files intact in the free disk space, although they’re not visible and looks like the deleted space can still be used, their content and details are still there, available for free and pro recovery tools.
