Submission + - Hard drive data eradication

Creighton Bildstein writes: "I'd like to know how businesses are dealing with their sensitive data-containing hard drives at the end of the technology lifecycle in their PCs, laptops and servers. Do they: A) Format the drives and sell or donate the machines B) Wipe the drives with Dept. of Defense software and then sell or donate the machines C) Completely destroy the drives via a shredder or something similar and dispose of the PC, laptop or server in an environmentally- friendly manner"
