Hi I need to clean my hard drive ready to sell
Is there any software to make sure its all deleted safely
Also as I have a restore disc so will it work as i need the OS hidden part to be left on for any other time it might need to be done

I use the free version of Killdisk fromm click here.

Best check but I think it wipes the whole disk including hidden partitions.

Other suggestion is the old fashioned fdisk and format as you will be able to wipe specific partitions and leave others untouched.

Sourceforce has a program funnily enough I decided I would use to remove data from my drive only minutes ago called eraser. Search here for "erase data selling" it should come up.
