Wipe That Hard Drive Completely Clean



As friends and colleagues look at getting new notebooks and netbooks and replacing older systems, the inevitable question comes up: what do I do with my old hard drive and ensure people don’t see my personal data. Doing a simple format just doesn’t cut it. Personally, I always take a hammer to the old hard drives, but that isn’t very “resell” friendly.

ReadWriteWeb has a great write-up for Windows and Mac users alike on how to permanently wipe the data on that hard drive to ensure your privacy is kept intact.
