    I had some material on my harddrive, music files and such that I wanted to delete, so I erased my harddrive and installed snow leopard fresh and clean. My question is can my harddrive still be "scanned" to see if the files were ever there at all?

    The directory to these files were destroyed, but not necessarily the files themselves.

    To be safe, just format it and use Security Options to choose the number of complete write-overs you'd like. The more, the more secure and the more time it will take to complete.

    Just use "Erase Free Space"
