secure format

  osben 14:16 15 Feb 2008


Can anyone suggest a suitable free download of a programme that I can use to make sure that all files are deleted for good when I format the hard disc.

I read somewhere that even though the HD has been formatted, the files could still be recovered.

I am sending a HD back to the suppliers and I don't want any of my old data to be recovered from it even though I will have formatted it.
