Yes I erased the drives but, I was just told that they have programs that can retreave the data even if you erased everything on the drive.  IS there a sure way to erase data that noone can retreave it again. Besdies the hammer? I want to bring them to the recycling plant this week. Thanks Heather

Do a low level format. There are programs that should do that.

Hay, I have some old hardd-drives and I want to recycle them. I erased the info but, someone told me that they have programs that can still steal your data off drives. How do I make sure this will not happen with my old drives when I recycle them? Thanks Heather
