  1. I use Bleachbit for removing clutter from my drive, but you need something better to securely wipe your hard drive.
    Bleachbit only wipes once. Multiple wipes are needed for security. You can run Bleach bit multiple times to wipe free space once you delete or wipe a file or folder, but be prepared for it to tell you you have no disk space left each time. That doesn’t hurt anything, as soon as you close Bleachbit your free desk space is open again.
