    Exclamation completely erase data

    My company has some laptops its going to donate. There pretty nice. 80gb hard drives. Problem is SOX requires us to completly remove ALL Data so it doesn't and can't be recovered.

    So I'm looking for a way to do it. Something as simple as a boot cd that will erase all data and prevent it from being recovered.

    Problem is, my company doesn't like to spend money. SO I have to find a free solution. Anyone know of any good ones. Just something that will erase all data and prevent it from being recovered but also allow us to reuse the hard drive.

    Please Assist.
