    I have an external (parallel port) Zip drive and want to remove it and give away all my disks. I have deleted all the files but want to write zeroes over all of them before disposing of them.

    The boot disk type of programs will probably not see my zip drive so I need to use something else.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Thanks for responding. I tried Eraser and it would not recognize the zip drive. I will download Ultrawipe next.
