    If you have a boot-up win XP cd, boot from it and delete all the partitions using the delete partition option. Guess that would erase everything.

    Download and install Eraser v5.8. It is a award winning freeware that completely erases the HD contents permanently by writing data on the HD many times. Download it and many useful system tools from here

    ^^^ Nope. Formatting doesn't erase the data completely. You need a special software for secure data erasing.

    I completely agree with Kiran_tech_mania. You need erasing softwares to shred every bit of your data. There are data recovery softwares available that recover data even from formatted or crashed hard disks.
