10.5: Create an updated OS X install on a to-be-sold Mac
Authored by: Dirk! on Aug 08, '09 11:35:19AM

Overwritung data multiple times is not necessary any more on current hard drives! Even data recovery service now clearly tell you that on current drives the data density is that high, that after a single overwrite everything is lost.
Suggestions to do multiple overwrites date back to floppy disk and MFM hard disk times.
