comment How to safely shred unlinked files on a Unix-based file system?
Did you read the fact that the file is unlinked. By that I also meant there are no more I-nodes / pointers to it. So from a file system perspective the path (location/to/file.txt) does not exist.

comment How to safely shred unlinked files on a Unix-based file system?
@Zoredache: Well, this works in theory. How can you do this operation in sync with the filesystem? You would need to ensure that throughout this lengthy operation you are doing absolutely no writes to files or journal / metadata, right? Could you mount the partition as read-only and somehow perform this zero/random fill on a low level? Doesn't seem that much practical...
