I did some looking online and found a free program called DBAN (Darik's Boot and Nuke), but as I researched it a bit more I found the following: " It does not provide users with a proof of erasure, such as an audit-ready erasure report." I saw this repeated in multiple locations.
I assume that this report might be needed if a company has potentially sensitive data on a hard drive (this is most likely the case with these computers). Does anyone have any experience with wiping company hard drives and if so, is this report really necessary? If the report is recommended or necessary, could you please recommend a cleaning tool (preferable free/open source) that I can use to wipe the HDs and provide a report for the compny records.
Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but I am ultimately looking to build/upgrade these computers. I would like to keep them for personal use.
I appreciate any and all help you can provide.
