I'm looking to zero out my hard drive for a clean install of the os.
I want to write over the current data with all 00000 or 111111.
I've heard it refered to as zeroing out the drive.
How do I do this?
I have a few pc books in regards to linux and windows, but nothing lists this procedure.
Is it called something other than zeroing out the drive.
I can delete the partion and start from there, but does zeroing it out provide more security of sensitive data?
