    hello clariissa

    You can use the Eraser program at this address:

    Download and then check out the helpfile for instructions.

    It depends on how important/dangerous datd are on your HD
    1- if you think data is too sensetive > one solution only> destroy HD with hammer
    2- if the data is just normal> Format is enough, I dont think people are interested to search in the darkness > they need tools > torch is not enough
    3- active eraser free (demo version is enough)http://www.ntfs.com/products.htm
    4- (this is the method I use, fast)if you can format in NTFS then FAT then NTFS then FAT. I found the file recovered after this process is illigible and useless.
