    I have 2 hard drives with beta versions of windows 7 on them.
    I want to use them for back ups.
    I'm trying to find a free easy to use disc wiper that will do the OS as well as anything else on the drives.
    I tried to Google this but didn't see anything.
    Thanks for any help.

    Any live *nix distro should work for that.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
    I've downloaded dban and copy wipe and burned them to cds.
    Hook up the hard drive I want to wipe and dban will boot the pc but doesn't allow/recognize the keyboard.
    Copy wipe doesn't even boot the pc.
    The drives I want to wipe are 32 bit Windows 7.
    I guess I'll have to keep looking.
    Thanks.

    Strange. You made the CD with makedisk.exe? Does the CD boot in other computers?
