Like many of you, I would like to purchase a time capsule and would love to unload my 250gb Lacie External Hard drive on ebay. My question is... is there a safe way to delete the data on the drive. I've always been nervous about selling computers because of all of the information that can be left on them even after deleting everything. If I sell my external hard drive, how do I safely erase the data? Do I simply throw the files in the trash and delete them? I'm sure there must be a better/safer way. Please advise. Thanks in advance!
