    Default Killdisk

    I'm selling one of my old machines to my cousin. He I don't worry about but he knows some shady people and I do online shopping and banking so I know to erase the HDD before he acquires it.. but what erasure method is enough...

    I notice one was like a 35 pass, I know I need more than a 1 pass would the 3 or 7 pass DoD ones make it very unlikely anything could be reconstructed and acquired or should I go for more than 7?

    Don't worry guys..

    I talked to a friend from another forum who works in forensics and he did trial runs and said the 7 pass DOD option will pretty much make stuff unrecoverable....

    35 passes or more really aren't necessary cause it is virtually impossible to make most stuff out; according to him, after the 7 pass DOD wipe....

    Although he then told me... those people even if crooks shouldn't have forensic level software and equipment so a one pass should suffice however being crooks you never know, they tend to not follow the law so he said just do the 7 pass they won't be able to find out anything after that he pretty much said..

    I also think so.
