    "Nice interface, but slow..."

    October 7, 2013  |   By dewul

    Version: R-Wipe&Clean 9.9 build 1839

    Pros

    It has a nice interface and the ad-hoc wiping of a file (using the context menu) is fairly fast.
    Quick replies from the R-TT Support team, even in weekends, which is exceptional.

    Cons

    In my opinion "Creating a task" is pretty confusing.
    However, that aside, THE big issue is "Wiping Free Space": R-Wipe & Clean will create a temporary file, which will, in the course of the process use up -all- available free space on a givenn drive.
    Meaning, for example, wiping free space of a 1TB drive, being filled with with 500GB of data, R-Wipe & Clean will create a temporary file of 500GB, resulting in a 'Full Disk"-error when trying to write anything to that drive.
    It is not possible to assign a fixed space (e.g. a max of 100GB) for the temporary drive.
    Also, the -Removing temporary files- takes ages! It is better to use Explorer to delete the temporary file.
    Example: it took 1 hour for R-Wipe & Clean to remove abt 0,5GB(!) of the ... 550GB temporary file, i.e. if this would go on in the space pace, it would take 1100 hours (45 days).

    Summary

    ood interface, fine for the single ad-hoc wiping of file. Fast support-replies.
    However, donot try wiping free space.
    Currently I am using BCWipe v6 (sofar, regretfully, not reviewed by CNet) that I think has a number of advantages over R-Wipe & Clean, like a faster wipe free space operation (because of its NEW reserved space manager), avoiding low disk space, a faster MFT wiping, it can wipe directory slack space on ntfs drives and temporary data stored in ntfs log file andalso has a 'Transparent Wiping'-feature. When activated, this will intercept all 'delete' commands and securely wipes the data files. Running wipe free space and/or wipe temporary files are not necessary anymore.
