You need to get a disk-wiping program, preferably one that meets the U.S. Department of Defense’s Media Sanitation Guidelines, and you need to set aside a few hours. What a good disk-wiping program will do is write all sorts of data on your hard disk multiple times, effectively obscuring your original data with newer, nonpersonal stuff. This takes some time, so don’t procrastinate and leave it to the morning of your planned recycling run. Mac users looking for disk-wiping programs can use Mireth Technology’s ShredIt X ($25).

Thanks so much for this detailed and insightful email Roger. You were absolutely right. Even though I have Administrator rights on the Windows 2012R2 server where the File System is located (as one of the logical partitions – F: drive), I had to start ShredIt with “Run as an Administrator”. When I did that, folders are being shredded no problem. I truly appreciate the quick response.
