unused space

[SOLVED] Wipe function in Linux: Is choosing the user's home folder enough?


I have 'home' on a separate partition. When using BleachBit's wipe function, it offers me to choose a folder to wipe. By default it's 'home' or to be precise: 'home/username/'. Now I wonder how BleachBit determines the space to delete based on a directory. Shouldn't BleachBit rather wipe all unused space in home instead of only the current user's home folder. I mean, couldn't there be file relicts from that user's home folder stored somewhere in an area that is out of that folder?
