Managed File Transfer? Master File Table? Media Foundation Transform?

Secure wiping actually should delete the physical data from disk sectors, no just names, if you want to prevent access to data of deleted files...

Sure, I don't mind. I wish I could help but I did not work with this file system of this level, only on "physical" drive level (heads, tracks, +sectors...).
