What do you have to hide anyways?

No worries. As long as you deleted the partitions, they wont get anything unless they pay thousands unpin thousands to get some professional data recovery that only the fed's and cops do.

Unless you REALLY need to hide some shit, the only safe thing to do is to break it all. Then burn it for good measure. Other then that, deleting the partitions will stop any wondering eyes from checking over it.
