I'm getting a new replacement drive from Sony soon (I hope), and I will need to send my old one back. What are some recommended programs/software that wipes the HDD completely to the point where nobody can recover any files or information.
I was thinking of using the WD diagnostic "write zero" thing. Should I just run it once, or should I run it multiple times? If more than once, then how many?
