Hello overwriter, thanks for the reply.
I'm not sold on a one pass erase as being secure.
I'd never thought of using a hex editor to find the files. Do you know of one with built in secure erase too?
I have found a program that finds the files and then securely wipes them, it's called Restoration, but unfortunately it doesn't do a Gutmann wipe. If you or anyone else can suggest another program that can do this please let me know. Thanks.
BTW do you think requesting this as an eraser feature would be a good thing (it definitely would be for me)

I needed to get rid of about 15 small files which were buried in 480GB of free space,
