"Erase free space" does work as intended
Authored by: lincd0 on Oct 14, '08 08:13:25AM

It erases free space on the selected volume. If you run it on the root filesystem, it doesn't affect any other mounted filesystem, File Vault or not.

If there is any point to this article, and I'm not sure there is, it seems to be that some users who don't understand what a volume is might think they're erasing free space on their File Vault, when they really aren't.
