'Wipe Free Space'

Can anyone recommend a free program that will securely erase free space on my drive.

I have used Eraser previously but wondered if there were others that come highly recommended.

The latest version of CCleaner click here has a new function to wipe free space.

Thanks for your responses.

I had forgotten hat CCleaner did this in the latest version.

However, Eraser runs much longer than CCleaner so must clear out other data remnants over and above CCleaner. Is this the case or is CC just quicker carrying out the task?
