Implementing zeroing of deleted data
To reclaim storage (e.g. shrink virual disk files) in virtual environments (e.g. VMware) the unused data blocks must be zeroed out. If data got deleted, a tool must be used to zero that data blocks. sdelete from Microsoft (formerly Sysinternals) can do this. But sdelete zeros the whole free space. A way faster method (and a clear benefit over sdelete) would be to zero only the blocks of deleted files.
AFAIK, there is no tool out there that can do this.
