Hi there
As a Forensic IT auditor, we get all sort of stuff on our machines. Are there are software to clean the hard drives completly?

Regards

Wipedrive from accessdata works nicely, if you want to physically destroy the drive use a torx driver and open the drive then remove the platters and grind them on a belt sander. Sears has nice ones for a few hundred dollars and they do the trick.

Thanks guys )

I understand your point …. What I was thinkable is something which would be slightly more cost effecient for a team of about 10 investigators.

Although the Wipedrive from FTK is good try Dariks Boot and Nuke @ http//dban.sourceforge.net/. It is excellent and free!
