    Have several hard drives I need to over write to get
    data off. Have tried a google but not much there under "shredder".
    Are overwrite programs known by another name?
    Once had a program from some company (infraworks?) in
    Austin Texas but can't seem to find them either.
    Suggestions for programs or how to search.

    Search for "wipedisk" or "wipedisk.exe"

    Autoclave works well too, but is no longer supported (not that it
    matters much).

    Search for ZERO fill utilties. Brings the HDD back to factory defaults.
