Name        : zerofree
Product     : Fedora 27
Version     : 1.1.1
Release     : 1.fc27
URL         : https://frippery.org/uml/
Summary     : Utility to force unused ext2/3/4 inodes and blocks to zero
Description :
zerofree is a utility to set unused filesystem inodes and blocks of an
ext2/3/4 filesystem to zero.  This can improve the compressibility and
privacy of an ext2/3/4 filesystem.

This tool was inspired by the ext2fs privacy (i.e. secure deletion)
patch described in a Linux kernel mailing list thread.

WARNING: The filesystem to be processed should be unmounted or mounted
read-only.  The tool tries to check this before running, but you
should be careful.
