Wondering About BestCrypt

    I obtained a larger hard drive and it is real pain to wipe it as it takes
    many hours now. I cleaned the HD and installed BestCrypt on the HD
    creating a manageable size area for "sensitive" data. Within the container
    I setup a Virtual PC running MSVirtualPC, which is really not that bad -
    compared to the Connectix Version, so I can run a totally self-contained PC
    on my XP box for the data and not get my HD contaminated with the data.

    My question is this - supposedly the container is unbreakable, but I would
    not want to trust that. If I were to quickly ZAP the disk by writing to
    the header area and leaving the rest untouched, would I feel safe enough
    not to the wipe the whole disk? Or would wiping the container that is
    set on a partition just for it - be better so as to be unrecoverable, along
    with of course a wipe of the free space for that partition.

    Thoughts...


    Thanx.
