The best way to totally make a drive "as new" is to download a simple utility, to run either from a floppy or CD, as provided by hard drive manufactiuers.

Go to the website for the maker of your drive and look for a simple utility to totally wipe the disc clean. As run from DOS, will take quite a time to complete. This is the only way I know to really remove everything. Reformatting and most utilities do NOT remove the MBR info.

Alternatively, check for a suitable one here:

To really wipe totally to make disc as though unusued, you need to use one as described.
