Executive summary: Data overwritten once is unrecoverable on any drive
made in the last 10 years. So do a single write pass from /dev/random
on working drives.

Thanks for all this information.
By the way, does somebody knows about the flash memory?
Is zeroing a whole usb key enough to make the data unrecoverable?
