    Hi Guys, have a couple of old PC's I need to get rid of. I'm no technie so your suggestions and help are appreciated!!

    What's the best free software or methods to totally clean a hard drive from old PC'S? Besides taking a sledge hammer to
    it of course. LOL

    I think CCleaner has something but I want to make sure everything is gone that can possibly
    be deleted.

    Much appreciate your help!

    ccleaner drive wiper should be sufficient for what you want as it will wipe all the free space on your drive.

    File Shredder will delete existing files so they cannot be recovered if you still have stuff to get rid of.
