I have been receving various advice about a box we came across that we need to prep for resource recovery. We were told to erase all of the contents and re-format the drive. I am questioning if we actually need to reformat the drive, or just use Eraser to do the job. I have already started using Eraser, but was checking Google, some other IT colleagues and thought to ask here to make sure we were on the right path. I look forward and welcome your input if we are on the right path, or need to add/change anything in wiping this box.


Almost forgot, the box is an IBM Aptiva running Windows 98.


In advance:
