Erasing complete disk


New Member

I exchanged my hdd and want to sell it, so i want to completely secure-delete the drive.

Now ive got 2 options:

a) Eraser: I format the drive, start a 2-time pseudorandom data pass and reformat it!

b) I use DBAN for a 2-time pseudorandom data pass!

The first option has the advantage that I could use my PC while the data-shredding is made.

Is there any difference between those 2 options (security). Should I use the b) option?

Is a 2-time pseudorandom data pass enough? I really want to be sure that all the data is destroyed, because the hdd had very important data on it!

I'll respond on the Eraser forum.
