How much wiping do you do? :)

Craig Wright and others just wrote a paper about this not long ago. They
pretty well debunked the magnetic spectroscopy theory that has been floating
around for years....This blog past has a more-or-less abstract of the paper:

KC's local e-cycler Surplus Exchange wipes their drives using the DOD 7
pass method, they may have a few small drives appropriate for this.

Let's do a test, and end speculation.  Let's get a few "junk" drives, have
a few people wipe them, using some paranoid/non paranoid techniques,

then send the drives to some one else who will put on a few specific
files, a few word & excel docs, photos, a fake quickbooks files, some OS
files, what ever, wipe the drives using a series of techniques 1 with the
single pass, one with a multi over write, etc

then send the drive to people like me, or other volunteers who will then
try to recover the data, I'd recommend using different software.  Then we'll
post the results.

Something just does not feel right about a single over write.
