Wipe Free Space In Less Time With BCWipe 6.0 From Jetico
New BCWipe takes wiping speed and sophistication to the next level
Military-standard data wiping software developer Jetico has announced the release of BCWipe version 6.0 to permanently delete files. BCWipe is now designed to be faster, safer and more sophisticated than ever before thanks to innovative features, most notably BCWipe’s new Reserved Space Manager to save time needed to run Wipe Free Space.
Highlighting the practical benefits for Jetico's new BCWipe, CEO Michael Waksman stated that, “Our development of BCWipe 6.0 has been driven by real customer needs. Organizations with large, modern storage devices can hold terabytes of data in free space, which can take several days to clean completely. BCWipe's new Reserved Space Manager offers a clever way to meet such demanding security objectives while reducing painful downtime.”
BCWipe’s Reserved Space Manager significantly cuts the time need to Wipe Free Space by preserving previously wiped space in a clean state. Once the Reserved Space is created, BCWipe will recognize it the next time the Wipe Free Space process is running. Since the wiped data in Reserved Space is considered occupied, it will not get used or “dirty”, so that space does not need to be wiped. Less space to wipe results in less time spent on this process.
BCWipe ensures that there is always sufficient free space available for work by automatically monitoring and maintaining the threshold as set by the user.
Mr. Waksman concludes, “In the end, the best security is that which interferes as little as possible with your real mission. At Jetico, we take this to heart as inspiration for our innovative, world-class security software.”
BCWipe has proudly served the U.S. Defense Community for over 10 years – and is widely accepted as the de-facto standard to securely erase files on hard drives and mitigate the risk of unwanted access to confidential information.
Building upon the existing power and efficiency of BCWipe, version 6.0 offers the following added features and benefits:
- Faster Wipe Free Space operation with new Reserved Space Manager

- Wipe temporary data stored in NTFS log file
- Avoid Low Disk Space situation - BCWipe is now smart enough to overwrite free space without causing a Low Disk Space condition
