I've recently changed Operating Systems from Win98SE to Win XP Home Edition. I've also been a user of Norton System Works 2002 for the past 2 or so years, and I'm used to and like the program.

A regular part of system security & maintenance on my Win98 OS was the use of Norton ''Wipe Info'' where I'd wipe "Free Space", which was one of the 3 wipe options, along with 'files' & 'folders'.

I've just discovered that the "free space" wipe is not an option on XP with the NTFS file system.

Anyone have any idea how to wipe free space using either 'NORTON Wipe Info' or some other utility on the XP OS.

Using a Compaq Laptop, P3, 600Mhz, 20G HD, Win XP Home, IE 6. All updates to Windows & Norton up-to-date & current.

Thanks in advance. DS
