    Can someone recommend software (preferably free) that can scrub clean a hard drive? Mac & Windows if it makes a difference.

    Thank you.

    Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD) includes things such as Parted Magic and, if you're happy to use something that does not have (does not need) a windowed GUI: HDAT2.

    If you want to securely erase free space whilst running Windows, I recommend Eraser.

    Yes, this is what I want -- to securely erase a bunch of hard drives.

    For Windows, I know easeus partition master can wipe all your data on the hard drive or wipe the free space only. For Mac, Drive Genius do the same thing.
