Technically, formatting doesn't erase any data. Files can be easily recovered after a drive has been formatted. You will need special software to completely wipe the HDD. A lot of people use DBAN (Darik's Boot And Nuke). You will have to create a bootable DBAN disc, then boot off it & follow the instructions. It may take an hour or longer to completely wipe the drive, depending on its size.

Smash the drive up before junking it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
