THC Secure delete and NTFS (and FAT32)

Threaded View

I am a windows user, but am looking for a tool to securely overwrite the
unused diskspace on my hard disk.

I have read that THC's secure delete
( ) can do this, and also that System
rescue cd ( ) has this software on it.

What i'd like to know is whether it is possible to use the gentoo linux
system rescue cd to run sfill from the secure delete package from THC, and
wipe all the unused disk space on a NTFS (and for info purposes FAT32)

The System Rescue CD does have capture-ntfs, so perhaps it might be
possible, mounting it with this.

Thanks for your help,

NTFS write support is not yet completed in the current kernel tree. You will
be only able to overwrite files with data of the exact size of the original
FAT32 will work.
