People can still get data off the hard drive after everything has been wiped clean, I have no idea how.

There are tools however, to wipe the drive replacing all data with binary digits, 0s or 1s across the board.

Only on NTFS...
And who would be retarded enough to use that nowadays when superior filesystems like EXT4 exist?

You have to overwrite the data at least seven times before even the US government will say "**** it, it's lost"

To everyone on this post thank you for your ideas and suggestions; I now know how to rid all my hard drives of evidence. Though I doubt I'll need to go that far since most of my enemies are ignorant idiots.

But it never hurts to know this stuff.

If you delete a file off your desktop right now...
your hard drive marks the area where it is located on the hard disk as blank space.
The file you deleted will be recoverable if and only if, no other file is written where your deleted file used to be.

Secure deletion methods-
1. Scrambling
Open hard disk spin hard disk place to random positions. Effectiveness - 95%
Someone with enough desire could recover the data. To anyone else data is loss because the hard disk lost the exact location of data in terms of position.

2. Software
Use software to overwrite data with A. (Random information) B. Zeros
Effectiveness- Unclear, VERY effective
3. Degaussing
Purchase a degaussing machine that will get rid of the magnetic field
Effectiveness - Unclear, Very effective BUT! HDD can resume normal operation if serviced by the manufacturer.
4. Physical destruction
It is what it is, Take your hard drive and destroy it in the most horrible fashion using either a shredder, fire, chemicals, electricity, and imagination.

hard drive stores info using binary code when you format a hard drive it magnetically erases the code but there is a sort of image burn if you will that cant be detected by a normal computer but using special equipment or software can be read unless overwritten by new data. think of a plasma screen tv if that helps at all

not if you overwrite everything with zero's. then they can't read what was on your hard drive. or just as blasthardcheese said. use a hammer

Format? yes ofcourse. even i can get Data out of that.
You have to Dban. Someone claims to get data out of that to, but has recently been proven impossible.
Dban replaces all binaries on the disk to 1 (or 0 if im wrong). if you are able to get data out of that , **** you're a wizard

DBan actually writes over all data on a harddisk with randomly generated bits 35 times. It is impossible to roll back.

They can if you just erase the data since a computer wont really erase it, it will only "forget" that it's there. so as long as you don't use that space so that the data you had becomes overwritten you can still recover the data. that's why you always should overwrite your old hard drives with zeros (blank data) if you really want to hide what was on there.

They can still recover data from smashed disks if they are willing to put in the time. It'd be best to boot off a live Linux distro and dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sdX bs=4096 where X is the hard drive you want erased forever

if you're still super worried run the discs across a sander and they wont be able to get anything off it anymore. (source: i've destroyed my fair share of personal hard drives.)

I once needed to wipe all information from a hard drive. I started by zapping the **** out of it with electricity, then I smashed it with shovel, followed by stuffing the remains with homemade napalm and setting it on fire, and finally finished it off with 3 mortars before tossing the charred, black remains into a river. Because no one needs to see one embarrassing photo of me at the Christmas party.

It would be easier to use a drive wiper..... your os doesnt actually delete data, it chops that start and the end off and tells you its free, overwiting the actual data when there is something to replace it with. there are 2 ways to perminately erace data - 1 fill up the drive with other new data, 2 use a drive wiper like ccleaner or one of the linux live cds(its in the options somewhere)

I had a program like this for flash drives. Fills the entire drive with files (txt files i believe, but that is neither here nor there) and erases it all. Enjoy combing through thousands of blank text files, *******.

Actually no; Gutmann's findings are outdated (and even in his time the possibility of recovering proper data was very slim) and nowadays filling the disk with zeros is totally sufficient.

I want people to find my porn when I die. I think it would be funny, considering my tastes. See, when I'm watching porn to masturbate, it's pretty normal. I have a squirting fetish so that's the most out-there thing. Problem is, sometimes I just watch porn to be entertained, and that's where it gets weird. Did you know there's a guy who can fit five oranges in his asshole? Oh and there's this hentai where a demon cums pink glitter that makes women explode.
