    Hi everybody :)

    I received an old hard drive from a folk at work, but before installing it on my machine I wanna make sure everything on it is completely erased.

    To my mind, the ideal would be to have a program such as Eraser, but which in addition could be launched in Dos mode from a simple floppy disk at system start up.

    Does anyone know if such a freeware program is available ? Ideally, it should be at least as effective as Eraser and also able to erase any partition one would decide to clean up.

    Thanks for advices,

    Rgds, Crockett :cool:

    Eraser has a DOS version.
    It is the eraserd.exe file in its installation directory.
    There is also the option to create the nuke bootdisk in Eraser.
    The nuke bootdisk destroys all data in a hard drive, including partition tables, so you will need do partition the drive after using it.

    P.S.: I have never used the nuke bootdisk
