hi guys, i heard guttman is great but the new hard drives use new technology and other algorithms would do the same great job as guttman method

is it true? can you suggest me which is more secure? the 7 passes are good?

Nothing currently beats Gutmann for security. How many passes is dependent on the amount of time you are willing to spend on the erasure vs. the level of security required. Perform some simple cost-benefit analysis to see which suits you most.
