    Use dban, DoD Short (Three passes) should be more than enough.One pass is really all you need to render the data unrecoverable to most people on modern drives, even professionals, but DoD Short will give you additional piece of mind.

    DBAN or swapout hard drives if you are worried. The prices went down enough for it to be worth it.

    If you are really worried after you run DBAN, the government uses one more layer of security. Pound the hard drive with a 7# sledge hammer until you are satisfied with the results.
