    I don't know which is best, but I've used Eraser in the past and it worked well.

    Well, actually Microsoft has such a tool available for free download: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897443.aspx. You may find there the explanation behind Windows default behavior on this matter.

    Now talking about my last post here, I must say that I'm not using Eraser anymore! I'm now trying Jetico BCWipe and its "Transparent Wiping" feature is awesome.
