    Hi

    I would like to securely delete all data on hard drives. Although there are many software apps to do this, I would find it more convenient to use a hardware kit. Hopefully with connections for IDE, SATA, SCSI & maybe USB.

    Does anyone know of any hardware that can securely clean hard drives?

    The only method I know is by magnetizing the Harddrive. But it may probably be a expensive way of doing it.

    Why don't you use DBAN

    This is definetely the way to go, I recommend it. All you need to do is insert the floppy, select a few things, and come back a day later and your disk is clean :D
