    In some threads, such as this one, people seem to have come back with a "VERIFIED" after zeroing data and reinsalling Tiger. Two questions:

    (1) Can any of those involved say how long there HD continued to function?

    (2) How exactly do I "zero the data"? Is this just done through the Tiger "Erase and Install" option?

    This is in follow-up to this topic.

    THANKS!!!
