Re: Erasing a computer's data

One tool that might help is Piriform CCleaner. It has a “Drive Wiper” tool that claims to securely erase data from all free space on a disk. CCleaner has several features, and this is one that I have not personally used. However, for the most part, CCleaner does appear to be accessible, and a free version is available.

Subject: Erasing a computer's data
What’s the simplest way to erase or at the very least format a computer, an old XP machine?
Might I simply type format c: from the command line?
All the best, Brian
