Deleting Windows swap file
This option is used for deleting Windows swap file. When it is turned on, the program will perform the wiping action upon wipeout execution.
Windows Swap File is a large hidden file located in the root of your boot drive used for keeping your virtual memory. It is only a temporary file, but Windows does not delete it from your disk upon shut down, therefore, anyone can extract a lot of information from it. Moreover, this file contains traces of almost all files and data you used during the last working session. It is strongly recommended that you clean it.
