Sterilize a hard drive with “dd”

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.

As I solved the problems with the disks “fsck”

lacie_hd

A few years ago I bought a USB Disk sternum because of the limited space that I could offer to the files inside the computer (and also for me some healthy backup at regular intervals), and I opted for a nice LaCie the 1tb memory. I'm talking about even a few years ago, it was in fact the most capacious hard on the consumer market.

Just today, despite the apparent normal ignition, I realize that in addition to the classic blue light indicates that the operation of the device, he's added una rossa that certainly does not make me hopeful. I'm going to ripescarmi the PDF manual that I had lungimirantemente copied to my hard drive and I find that the red light indicates a disk error.
