If you want to boost the computer speed, you can go with the defragmentation process. It frees up the clusters on the hard disk and combines the fragmented files

Ordinarily, that won't make an appreciable difference (especially with SSDs), since Windows does this by default every week.

Beside which the OP's question was about wiping free space...
