Wiping Your Hard Drive

According to CNET.com, reformatting or wiping a hard drive might not be enough if you are donating or disposing of it. They suggest:
  • reformatting the drive
  • wipe the drive -- multiple times, not just once
  • crush or degauss the drive
A list of some wiping software and recycling programs is included.
