Default Re: How to wipe Hard Drive

Actually the best method to wipe hard drives is use the manufacturers utility disk programs " zero fill "
This usually stops all known software recovery programs available to the public.

Thanks to everyone for your help. I learned a lot on this subject.

That video was out there, but very interesting.

The physical wipe made me chuckle.
