"BleachBit Is the October [2013] Project of the Month [at SourceForge.net].

BleachBit is a nice tool for freeing disk space on Windows and Linux systems. BleachBit also helps to preserve privacy; in this time of privacy concerns, it might be something you want to check out. It's even caught the attention of computer security Technologist Bruce Schneier in The Guardian (http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/sep/05/nsa-how-to-remain-secure-surveillance) and in Wired (http://www.wired.com/opinion/2013/10/149481/). Read interview with Andrew Ziem on our blog (http://sourceforge.net/blog/october-2013-potm/)."

Used this to clean up more than 6 gigs of information off a reasonably old Win 7 x64 machine recently. I don't know that it had a major impact on speed, but certainly like that extra 6 gigs. Love this program.

V0.9.2

Faust, Daniel Feenberg is (according to LinkedIn) currently an IT Director at the National Bureau of Economic Research, so Wikipedia's label of "economist" appears to be a mistake. Also reference the 2006 NIST Special Publication.... so which computer scientists claim any data can be recovered after one pass? Also, I thought it was generous to write that each cleaner probably finds things the other doesn't and that CCleaner is older and more mature. CCleaner is not a bad tool and certainly does many things well.

@Andrew, well I'm unable to trust a program written by someone who favors the opinion regarding data erasure of an economist over that of a computer scientist, nor am I able to trust a program author who posts to a thread badmouthing his competition without properly identifying himself.

0.8.2 (and previous versions) worked fast and well but 0.8.3 hangs mid-use for me. And for others, looking at BleachBit's forum. So I'll stick with 0.8.2 till this is sorted.
