Darik's Boot and Nuke

I found a free computer software that would totally delete/destroy all the data stored in your hard drive(s). It's called Darik's Boot and Nuke, DBAN for short. Saves time if you want to reformat clean because them viruses sometimes stick even after reformatting.

Here's a quote from Darik's website:

About DBAN

Darik's Boot and Nuke ("DBAN") is a self-contained boot disk that securely wipes the hard disks of most computers. DBAN will automatically and completely delete the contents of any hard disk that it can detect, which makes it an appropriate utility for bulk or emergency data destruction.

DBAN is a means of ensuring due diligence in computer recycling, a way of preventing identity theft if you want to sell a computer, and a good way to totally clean a Microsoft Windows installation of viruses and spyware. DBAN prevents or thoroughly hinders all known techniques of hard disk forensic analysis.

DBAN is a free software product that can be used at home or in a business at zero cost. The only official place to obtain DBAN is by download at this web site. We do not sell DBAN media.

I tried it on my desktop, and I think it's good on what it says. If you need the program, go to the creator's website, www.dban.org.
