Maxtor External HD

Maxtor OneTouch 111 External Hard Drive.

I have a Maxtor External hard drive USB connected to my Sony laptop. I wish to clear the Maxtor hard drive but am afraid of also deleting the contents of my laptop hard drive.

As a non-expert computer user, how can I download ‘Eraser’ and/or ‘DBAN’ to use on the Maxtor HD without adversely affecting the contents of my Sony laptop HD ?

The current DBAN release does not recognize external USB disks.

A potential solution is to create an empty filesytem on the external disk and run a freespace wipe with Heidi Eraser.
