Re: Need help with formatting
Yes, it could happen, but there are far more likely things that could happen to you that you probably don't even think twice about. For instance, you're much more likely to get killed in a car accident on the way to work or school yet you probably jump in the car without any reservations. At the same time you advocate strict measures regarding a used hdd to prevent something that is far LESS likely to happen.
There are too many REAL issues to worry about in the world to needlessly worry about somebody scouring your old hdd.
