Zeroing all the disk is termed "low-level format" this is a very long process which can take hours even for a small-size disk.
What disturbs you, however, is a blessing for people who need to recover data lost accidantly or by neglect.

Question- Do registry entries work the same way? Where can I get a simpleton's guide to registry?

this technically isn't true...when you move a file from one disk to another (be that a hard drive or to a flash drive) the same process occurs as when you delete a file...when you move a file it makes a copy in the new location then deletes the first...you're not physically moving the ones and zeroes...so when you do this...you're just making extra steps with no reward
What I have done is to get a 1-2 GB flash drive, move the file(s) to it, then delete from the flash. Now the entire file is no longer on your hard drive.
