You can use the command line encrypting program in windows2000 (sp2 or 3 i believe) and in windowsxp... use the /? to 
see exactly how it works... you can use it to overwrite free space so it's non-restoreble. I forgot the name of it but 
i read about in technet or msdn flash or windowsxp newsletter from Microsoft... so some browsing on microsoft.com and 
you'll probarly find it....

Met vriendelijke groeten,

Autoclave and KillDisk

Both write 1s and 0s over drive

In addition, we have drilled holes through hard drives that are being discarded.

Would someone please throw out a URL and suggestions for free Windows XP,
hard drive wiping utility's?  Something that will wipe a drive to a
machine that's going to be donated or thrown away?   

Preferably something thorough?

Thank You
