Mac app that securely deletes free space


From today’s mail bag:

I have an old iMac running OS X. I’d like to securely delete the the old user’s data files without deleting the OS & app’s. Is there a recommended app out there to do this?

  1. Drive Genius 2 from Prosoft Engineering has a Shred->Free Space Only option to do just that. Retail price: $99.

    Stay away from using Drive Genius’ disk defrag feature, however, as it can mess up the OS to make it unbootable.

  2. Somehow i missed the point. Probably lost in translation 🙂 Anyway … nice blog to visit.
