[Question] How do I Completely Wipe my Hard Drive?


Hello members,

I would like to know how to completely wipe a hard drive, including the os, everything. I’m going to be putting it in my new build and would like to wipe everything. Help would be much appreciated

My favorite is similar to dban. It’s called Active@ Killdisk. (This is also a free option that will make a bootable USB or CD) It writes zeroes to the drive similar to low level formatting. This makes it close to impossible to recover information from the drive.
