Linux - free space wipe of partitions


Hi ... thanks for this great software. I am running v2.0 on Ubuntu 18.04. My disk is set up with partitions for:
- / (root)
- swap
- /home

Question 1:
When go to Preferences / Drives to set the wiping folder, I can see it defaults to a folder in /home. For added security, should I also be specifying a folder in the / partition?

Question 2:
Am I right in thinking that Wipe Free Space will automatically wipe the swap partition?


BleachBit version: 
Your operating system: 
Ubuntu 18.04

Yes, wipe both / and /home for increased security. The value of each depends on how you use your system. For most home systems, the interesting stuff is usually in /home .

Wipe Free Space does not wipe swap partitions, but the Memory option wipes both the swap partition and RAM.
