So, I'm going to be recycling some old computers soon and was looking for a free program to wipe and purge the hard drive. A friend mentioned WipeDisk, but I thought I would pose the question to the venerable sages here if it is a good wiping program and if not, what they might recommend.

I've used Wipedisk for a couple of year and have no complaints about it.

This program overwrite the entire hdd with junk data making it nearly impossible to retrieve any data afterward.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
