Forget the Win based offerings!

The only way to be 100% sure of wiping everything from a hard drive so it can never be recovered is to do so at DOS level!  An excellent freebie from Terabyte will do this for you.  Just download, make a CD or floppy as self-booting and just change, for this, via BIOS setup, to boot from whichever you choose to create.  They offer a Win based one too but my advice would be to always opt for the base DOS version so as to be 101% sure of a total non-recovery wiping action.


Out of extra interest - most Hard Drive manufacturers also offer similar total-wipe utilities.
