Hello David, and thank you Carl!

Carl makes most of the relevant points. I’d still not call software wipe useless – as you noticed, all you could recover with a commercial tool was the file name. That’s still pretty useful.

But Carl is right – to securely sanitize media today against a really resourceful attacker, you need thorough physical destruction. A power drill is a good data sanitization tool.
