• How can I wipe free disk space in Linux

    In Linux, when one of our files is deleted, some content may still be left in the filesystem (unless it's overwritten by someone). I understand the wipe command can erase files but it's not erasing the free disk space I should have from those files. What can I do to achieve this?
