R-Wipe&Clean and SSDs

Post by stardust » Thu May 11, 2017 10:53 am

Does R-Wipe&Clean (currently at 11.7.2173) attempt to overwrite all the files it deletes, even on SSDs? It seems it does. I would like to prevent it from overwriting at all, especially on my SSD. Is this possible? If not, could you make it so? Please advise.

We'll add proper handling of SSD in the next release.
