app for deleting an HDD

  iqs 19:48 07 Nov 2009


Can you recommend a piece of software which will completely erase an HDD please.

I have been asked to format and reinstall the OS for a business before they sell their PC's.I suggested formatting the HDD a few times,or destroying the HDD and buying new.

They would sooner buy (free if possible) some software.

Any thoughts please?.
