Best Way To Erase Photos From HDD
Aug 28, 2014

I'm going to sell a couple of my older external harddrives that I've been using to back up my photos.  What is the best way to completely and utterly erase them so that the person buying the harddrive will not be able to get to the data no matter how much of a computer geek they are?

My hope is to find a program or utility that is free since I'll be selling these rather cheap any way and don't want to cut into the little money that I will get from the sale.

Thanks.
