What do you do if you have a hard drive you want to get rid of.
Sure you can take out all your data, compress and encrypt using a strong encryption and then format the hard disk drive. Even if the bad guys recover the encrypted file, trying to decrypt the recovered file would be a difficult task (think the average politician and a really hard level of Angry Birds).
But you can't just delete a file from the hard drive, it doesn't go away. When files are erased (and that's a pretty loose definition of the word) from a hard drive, they're don't really disappear, only the file location information is removed. In other words, the file(s) are invisible to the operating system (like Windows or Linux) but not impossible to recover (especially for geeky folks that have nothing else to do)
I'll offer some HOTR ideas. Then you all can come up with one of your own.
You might want to check with your homeowners association first.
