My father and I are trying to wipe the hard drive of his Dell Dimension 8400 after it was infected by multiple nasty viruses. We managed to clean the XP computer, but still want to wipe the hard drive to ensure future security and have downloaded Killdisk for that purpose. In using Killdisk, we have the option of erasing the whole hard disk including 2 different Dell partitions. However, we are reluctant to proceed with wiping the entire thing without knowing what these partitions are for. Does anyone have experience with this, using Killdisk on a Dell XP PC? We have all the boot disks, also.
