    Hey, who did you kill, that you have to be so paranoid?
    If you just don't want to get busted for nude pics of
    Britney Spears, just deleting is good enough.

    If you have forensic experts chasing you, I'd suggest
    replacing your hard drive about once a week, and
    destroying the old one. Or send it to me. I'll format it
    and use it in my box.
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    The US department of defense standard is to overwrite the data 7 times. "i wipe my unused disk space everyday". Everyday is a bit OTT dont you think? But if your that paranoid I hope you remember to overwrite your swapfile too.
