Erase free disk space from the command line
Authored by: Patchsmyle on Apr 24, '08 11:50:23AM

The right method to perform this very action is part of diskutil:

diskutil secureErase freespace 1|2|3 /dev/disk#s#

(See the man page on diskutil)

Band-aids never work right. They always peal off!

But that won't work unless you have root access, right?
