How much wiping do you do? :)

Nice idea tim, but the problem is you'd need some pretty specialist
equipment to have any chance of seeing things past 1 wipe. I mean, the drive
sends you a 0 its a 0 unless you can get down with your bas science self and
find out what the drive doesnt even know.

Maybe this is a thing to get bret and ovie in on...

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.
