Hello everyone and happy new year!
My old rive didn't sound good and I decided after 6 years it was time to replace it. Before I get rid of the drive, I wanted to make sure all personal data was gone. I deleted all the files and folders but (and I must watch too much TV), I know that old data can somehow be restored.
When I connect the drive back up, I can see it on my XP machine (which is also an old machine) but neither of my Win 7 machines show it as a network drive.
So using XP, how might I be able to fdisk, format or something like that to try and make sure the data is really difficult for anyone to recover?
Be safe and healthy this new year, and thanks!
