I was looking for some tool to securely erase couple of hard drives. I used to work with DiskWipe by roadkill but somehow in Windows 7 sometimes it couldn’t lock drive, thus cannot erase it.

While searching for a new tool I found a nice article, especially regarding using a hammer and nails to erase HDD 🙂
