CCleaner - Wipe Free Space Drives

After using CCleaner for the past number of years I thought that I should delve more into its Options. I find that in the Option - "Wipe Free Space Drives" only the 'C' drive is checked by default. Does anyone out there put a checkmark against their other drives?

In my version all drives are shown unticked in Tools / Drive wiper. I have only used it once - took ages, but did tick both my partitions.

Have used it once on C. If I then do my usual C clone back up to my Q is the wiped space carried over?

Apologies for the hijack compumac

Theoretically a clone is an exact copy so wiped space should be carried over . Before cloning and imaging I only scan for viruses and malware and defrag, I have rarely used the drive wiper, but did so when getting rid of an HD using a higher setting - took hours! Next time I used a hacksaw and cut the drive in 1/4's!
