Permanently delete data from your hard drive

Posted on August 24, 2006. Filed under: Advice, Windows XP |

Formatting your hard drive before you sell it on Ebay is not enough to permanently erase the data on disk. The Geeks are Sexy blog (aren’t they, though?) rounds up a few disk “white-out” applications which will wipe your hard drive of any trace of the data that once lived there.

Personally I’m partial to Eraser for Windows and Mac’s Disk Utility to get this job done, but these proggies (which fit on a floppy disk, if anyone still uses those) look like decent alternatives as well.
