View Full Version : How Can I REALLY Get Rid of Data on a CF Card
07-17-2005, 08:57 AM
I am going to sell a 1GB CF card on ebay and wanted to make sure all the data was REALLY erased. At first I thought I could use the Wipe feature on Norton SW but it seems that's just for HD's. Does anyone have a suggestion? Thanks!

Yeah, just fill it up with crap (mp3's, text files, etc...) and then erase. That'll overwrite any lingering data ghosts.

There are a ton of utilities out there to do this for you. They take a loooong time to run, so you should probably set up up & let it run overnight.
Just google on 'wipe data' or 'wipe drive' - here's a free one: http://www.heidi.ie/eraser/
