Before removing your files, skrub first floods the file with zero-filled bytes.
rm does not permanently delete files
Dawson Botsford

The way you talk about skrub simply amazing, as if you are the first one who came up with the idea. You’re just reinventing the wheel, and doing it wrong:

  • I don’t care whether the file content stays on disk or not, as long as I can utilize the free space.
  • If I do care, then I probably want to make sure that no one can recover it, which is not simply possible with flooding the file with zero-filled (?) bytes. There are proper ways to do it.

A simple Google search would reveal better results.
