Sterilize a hard drive with “dd”

shell

In today's article we deal with the deletion of data. Sometimes you get to have a huge amount of discs, accumulated over the years, which were once (not anymore) that now have no reason to exist in our drawer. Okay that storage space is never too, but drives off in a drawer I have never served very. This guide will be useful to all those who are going to sell a record, but they do not trust to the end because the user to whom you sell it might get your personal information.

At this point we must make a necessary clarification.

The only alternative (perhaps not the only, but the one I most accredited) is the use of command line.
