    So I'm wanting to sell my old rig and wipe out the HD's before I do a clean install of windows. I need something that will not leave a trace of whatever was on the hard drive previously. anyone??

    the manufacturers diagnostic tools usually include a tool that will write zeros to the drive.

    Writing random data could help as well.
