You can also boot to a bootable CD then purge the disk, but a badguy could still easily retrieve the data as it is not overwritten, the space is simply marked as available. The best bet would be to install that drive in an enclosure attached to another computer, or installed in the other computer as a secondary drive (not boot drive), then run a "wipe" program it, such as Eraser. This program writes a series of 1s and 0s in every sector of the disk, effectively overwriting any data previously stored on it. I recommend this procedure for anyone getting rid of a hard drive that previously stored personal data on it.
