I have two laptops which I have used in the past to hold quite valuable information (online banking details / log in details / work info) and I now want to sell them off.

I'm not sure exactly how I can properly wipe the hard drives completely without running a magnet over them or destroying them so the next user cant get hold of the info. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can do this or get near enough?

Cheers

Thanks for the advice, will the hard drive still be reusable after running DBAN?
