I had my C drive fail about a week ago, and though I'm back up to speed with a new HD and apps reinstalled and External HD having saved the day for data backup, I have to return the old HD to Dell or otherwise pay for the new one.
Dell sent a repair guy out to replace and install the new one and got me started on reinstalling Windows.
Before I return the old HD, I want to secure my privacy by wiping the old data off of it. He suggested doing it with a magnet, but I should've asked him where is the best place to buy one. One powerful enough to do the job.
Anyone gone through this? Would any old horsehoe shaped, elementary school science kit magnet get it done, or do I need something stronger?
