Deleting hibernation files
This option is used for deleting hibernation files. When it is turned on, the program will perform the wiping action upon wipeout execution.
Hibernation File is a large hidden file located in the root of your boot drive used for keeping all PC's memory including CPU's memory and registers upon hibernation. Windows always keeps this file on your disk and does not delete it upon system wakeup or shut down, therefore, anyone can extract a lot of information from it. Moreover, this file contains almost all files and data you used during the last working session terminated by the Hibernate command. It is strongly recommended that you clean it.
