Hard Disc File shredder eraser

I know there are programs to completely erase a hard disc. However I don't want to re-install windows. Is there a program (hopefully free) that will shred and erase anything on the free space of the disc. I assume things disappear when overwritten therefore the used space isn't an issue but the free space might still have old confidential files that could be retrieved.

Thanks.
