Be sure to wipe before selling?
Lol....this guy is some luser, sells his laptop on Ebay, but the buyer didn't get what he was supposed to have received so to get even he did what anyone else would do...
Kinda drives home the point to make sure nothing is left on the HDD....

LOL. Nice one.
But on a serious note, here is a link to the best software to erase everything off your disk.

The product features a shielded design such that media can be stored near it without being damaged.
It blew cell phones too
HDD to scrap in 40 seconds
white finger [to me] from having to try and FIGHT said HDD through the magnetic field was damn nigh instant
killed 100+ HDD's in about 8 hours
you have to switch it off and let it cool [5 mins on then 5 off ]
killed 000's of tapes and discs too
was asked to 'nuke' CD's
had to explain CD composition
was given thick gloves and a box
CD killing was a snap

I had a job that required us to run BC Wipe on the system's free space every Friday night to clear the slack/free space. However, I still use BCWipePD on all my old HDD that I give away.
