How to Completely Erase a Hard Disk Drive

Erasing a hard drive is a step that most computer users overlook. Just simply going through your data and using the delete key in Windows does not entirely delete the data. This just simply removes the shortcuts making it not visible to the user. If a person wanted, they can easily use software to obtain the data off the hard drive.

Fun Fact
A study was done and were 158 used disk drives were collected and the data retrieved. The two students found 5,000 credit card numbers, medical reports, detailed personal and corporate financial information, and several gigabytes worth of personal e-mail and pornography on those drives.

Disk Wiping Methods

There are two common methods for erasing data. These are formatting and wiping. Formatting a hard drive will not erase the data on the disk but will delete the address tables making it more difficult for average users to see the data, however, a computer specialist who is skilled can obtain some or all of the data using tools. Disk wiping is a more effective method and basically write over the data with 1's or 0's. The more times the disk is overwritten the more secure it is.

Disk Wiping Software
There are numerous free software utilities out there that will wipe your hard drive. I will recommend two programs and briefly go over them.

Eraser - Click here for download

Eraser is a advanced security tool for Windows that will completely remove data from your hard drive. It has a simple to use interface and uses multiple wiping methods such as Peter Gutmann's paper Secure Deletion of Data from Magnetic and Solid-State Memory.

You can use this program to delete files, folders, recycle bin contents and even free space on a drive. Click here for a quick start guide which will give you the basics.

-You can even use Eraser to wipe your flash drive.

Darik's Boot and Nuke - Click here for download

Darik's Boot and Nuke is basically software you boot your computer into. You can load the software into a floppy disk, CD, or USB stick if supported by your computer. Once you boot into the program, you select the wiping options and it will do the work. This is an effective program and I have used it before.

In order to boot your computer to the software you will first need to load the software on the media(usb/cd/floppy) described above then insert the media into your computer. Turn off your computer and as it is booting up you want to go into your computer BIOS. Usually, it will tell you what to press to get into BIOS during the boot up process. Once inside the BIOS you will need to change your boot order so it boots to the media device first. Once done, exit the BIOS saving your changes and the computer will boot into the media and start the data wipe software.


-If you are installing a new operating system I recommend you first wipe the hard drive using the methods described above, then formatting the drive for the new operating system. If you are giving away the hard drive or computer, I would recommend you wipe the hard drive before doing so.

I hope this article was informative. Be sure to check out my other tips and tricks by clicking on my name then clicking on "Tips" under my profile.

If you are referring to the data you had on the hard drive before you restored to "Out of Box".....I have really really bad news for you. All those warnings that you ignored during the restore process that all data would be wiped have come true for you. The data that was is no longer. Sorry.

I forgot my pattern password now i have to sign in using my username(email) both of which i don't have how do i get back into my phone?

If you forgot you screen unlock pattern then you need to reset it. The simple procedure is mentioned below -

    1. Continue to enter the unlock pattern five times until you are prompted with forgot password (forgot pattern in some handsets) at the bottom right side of the screen.
    2. Tap on the Forgot Password option and you would be prompted to sign in with the existing Google or Gmail account information. You need to provide the ID when you first register or activated your phone. If you have that, it would be easy to get in for you and then change the unlock pattern (atleast by now you would be remembering your unlock pattern).
    3. If you don't know the Gmail ID or the password is wrong then there is only one solution to hard reset your handset. The data present on the added SD card will not be wiped out but you would lose your personal data or information or contacts stored on your phone memory.
    4. The procedure for hard reset is mentioned clearly at reset the mobile.

I forgot my hdd1/ssd1 user password. What can I do about this?

if you refer to an hard-drive level password, then, I'm sorry, but you can't really do anything about it. If you have any precious data on it, you should bring it to an expert that will disassemble the plattern and mount them on a different controller to restore the data. If, instead, you refer to a bios-level password, then you wil just need to perform a CMOS-reset (refer to your specific laptop model instruction for the how-to).
Hope it helped,
