I have a lot of experience in IT Security, two suggestions, first one buy a disk wiping software tool with a decent level of bit wiping and perform the operation several times, second option is use a hammer and make sure you smash the internal magnetic disk to bits, you will probably need to take hard disk apart to get to the disk. Second option is cheaper and more fun and more secure.

I do this for a living.

The best product for data erasure is blancco. THis has been tested by Qinetic and meets the UK IAS5 (Information Assurance Std 5) which is the standard used by the Government.

However if you really want to do it properly then I recommend our MOD approved disk shredder....

A big f-off pickaxe works quite well as well.

I like that disk shredder, I could think of lots of stuff to put in there

I cleared mine with a drill through the units and then smashed them. The old computers went to a re-cycle place in Southampton who tell me they also use Blancco. Whilst I was there Cunard had delivered their old stuff and left hard drives in to be sorted by blancco. Must be good to leave the drives in.
