disk and quick format it. Then I'd run something like 'RECUVA' or any other free DATA RECOVERY TOOL to see what it turns up.
If it finds and recovers nothing ... then you should be probably safe to get rid of it.
Let us know how it turns out..
PS...I use 'Wipe Drive' by White Canyon to 'wipe' drives.
I downloaded Active KillDisk to wipe out my Seagate external HDD so that I can sell it without worrying about identity theft.
I used the "Kill" function and I'm not sure what the difference between that and the "Wipe" function is.
After 16 hours, it finally "Killed" the hard drive. Now when I plug in the hard drive via USB, my computer recognizes it when I plug it in and it powers on, but it no longer displays the partition on explorer.
What am I supposed to do now? Do I still have to use the "Wipe" function for it to prevent data from being restored? I wish they would post more information on this because there are NO instructions whatsoever.
Thanks in advance.
