  1. Faster Wipe Free Space operation with new Reserved Space Manager Wipe Free Space can be a time-consuming process. Modern large disks with terabytes of free space could take several days to complete. BCWipe's new Reserved Space Manager saves time by preserving the wiped space in a clean state. For more detailed information, see Reserved Space article in Help File.
  2. Wipe directory slack space on NTFS drives The NTFS directory node is a special file that contains names of files and subdirectories. Like any other file, the directory node/entry has slack space which may still contain names of deleted files, as well as other deleted data.
  3. Wipe temporary data stored in NTFS log file NTFS is a journaling file system that uses the NTFS Log ($LogFile) to record usage history of the file system.
  4. Avoid Low Disk Space situation BCWipe is now smart enough to overwrite free space without causing a Low Disk Space condition.
  5. MFT wiping is faster and more convenient than ever When wiping free space and unused MFT records, BCWipe v.6 wipes MFT several times faster than before. When wiping a file, BCWipe v.6 wipes the corresponding MFT record.
  6. New wiping standards added BCWipe now includes British HMG IS5 (Baseline, Enhanced), Canadian RCMP TSSIT OPS-II, NAVSO-P5239-26, Russian GOST R 50739-95, US Army AR380-19
