So tomorrow is my last day at my job before I start my new one, and I have a company laptop and cell phone that I will end up returning. My phone has no personal information, I kept my own private cell so I never used my work one for personal stuff, so a factory reset is all I plan to do.
However, my laptop on the other hand has been used for personal things, mostly my wife. So I want to scrub it down so that nothing is recoverable. Not looking for anything super fancy that has the goal of being "undetectable" or "forensics proof", just looking to make sure no personal data is left on the hard drive.
So what do people recomend? I was thinking of just booting up an ubuntu live CD and doing a " dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hdaX " but I was hoping for maybe a live boot CD that will do a good job for me.
