Re-using external drive

I've been using a Lacie 80GB drive for backups, which I've now replaced with a bigger drive. To clean the Lacie drive for re-use, do I just serially delete the backups (Acronis) or use a program like the Disk Wiper that's on the latest PCA DVD?

I would do a Full Format, then you will have a clean empty 80Gb drive to use as you wish.
