    what about a program that will wipe it and format it with different file systems?

    Fat, Fat16, Fat32, NTFS, Linux Ext 2/3, etc.

    would that work,
    If you had an NTFS Partition Then Formated Over it With FAT And then NTFS on top or would there still be some stuff on the partition?

    Use Eraser. It's a secure multi-pass disk-wiping utility.
    It will create a "Nuke" boot disk and walk you through it. It's simple to use, and you can
    configure the number of passes, etc.

    Yes. It depends who you're trying to keep it from, but data can be retrieved until it's been overwritten
    up to about 12 times or so.

    this post is guaranteed 100% parrot-free

    LOL@BOT.............A littel much even for the paranoid.

    I use Window Washer by Webroot.
    You can use a feature they call adding bleach to the wash.
    This overwrites the file twice before deleting it(default settings)
    it will allow u to go as high as 10 x's.

    The NSA standard is only 7 x's.


    Peace brotherdoobie B)
