program for really formating hard drive
Hello, about 8 months ago I searched AO and found info about a program for deleting your hard drive, thing is I do not remember the name. I have searched again but haven't been able to find it. This is what I remeber from using the program see if this sounds familiar to anybody:
This prog was to be copied with rawrite to a floppy. You booted your computer with this floppy and entered the program in which you could choose the number of passes with random data that should be applied to your hard drive. I specifically remember that the highest number of passes was 25 and the prog claimed that not even the NSA could recover data from this operation.
I used this program succesfully on two of my computers but I lost the floppy and I need it again.
Any help finding this program would be appreciated.
