    And by that I mean write random data or all 0s or 1s on the unused space...

    Formating is not an option.



    Thanks...

    Mmm.. I'm curious as to why you would want to do something like this? I'm sure if you search around there is a virus out there that can achieve this for you...

    There must be a utility for this, but I can't think of one off the top of my head. Perhaps Norton has something? I remember they used to have something like this for Mac back in the day.

    HD manufacturers package software with the product. The software has an option to write 0's and 1's. For maxtor its MaxBlast, i forgot what its called for WD.
