a) Bleachbit allows a "cleaning up" of files, but not defrag
b) First partition the portion of the hard drive to be wiped, noting the drive designation (e.g.
/dev/sdaX, where X=integer) using either gparted
or the like; then wipe it in terminal using the dd command
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdaX bs=4096 conv=notrunc,sync
Run gparted or the like again, and note that portion is an unknown, according to the partioner. Delete or format, as desired.
I use SystemRescueCD
. AFAIK, no software to do what you say, per se
, exists. (lol)
