This has been discussed numerous times and it usually ends with the notion that the only 100% sure way of destroying digital data is to completely physically destroy the hard drive - to make it into sand-sized particles.

 

Other than that, you can format your drives in order to remove all the data from them.:)

other malware to destroy all data

Will assume its not your machine. File encryption is pretty popular these days, ie;crypto-ransomware. Just dont offer to decrypt the files. Data is as good as gone!. Unless of course they've made a off-line back-up.

If this is data on your own PC, do a reformat or use some bootable tool to securely wipe all data.

 

If this concerns data on any device that is not your own, the rules are simple, at BC we try to help people repairing their computer, not destroying it. For this reason I will lock this topic.
