Norton had a program called wipedisk, which wrote to the whole drive, and
there are some shareware programs also. However, if you use Fdisk and
remove all the partitions, and then create a single partition, then do
a format /U/V then that will pretty much clean out everything. I have
heard from some sources that nothing is ever completely gone and No Such
Agency can actually pull data off a drive that was erased and reformatted.
I have a hard time believing that one. Are you concerned about security,
or just erasing and initializing the Drive?
