A few years ago, I had to look into DOE (not DOD) policy on this issue. At the time, the only acceptable way to erase a hard drive was to push it into a grinding wheel. Since hard drives are cheap these days anyway, that's probably a reasonable approach.
Be advised, I don't know what DOE allows nowadays.

David Finley, P.E.Sent: November 26, 2002 14:57Subject: Off Topic - Hard Drive Cleanup SoftwareI'm going to switch some computers around between my office and my house. I want to make sure there are not remnants of financial or client data left on the hard drives to surface down the road, especially if we later donate the computers to others. Can anyone recommend any software specifically for making sure erased data is truly earsed? I'd rather do that than have to format the disks and reinstall the software we want to keep.M.
