Due to the microscopic nature of current HDD internals this may no longer be possible...
I once witnessed an 8" 12MB HDD having most of its data recovered after being "security wiped" with several passes of 0's, then 1's bit patterns. This may have been pre-RLL or RLE.
I do not remember if the method employed had a name, which makes it difficult for me to quote a source until the "major search engine HQ'd in Mountain View, CA" has a direct connection to my failing memory! They are probably working on that, just don't tell the tin-foil hat people that they were right all along OK?... shhhhh lol. [*]
"data recovery by adjusting head alignment" found seven million results, the first few were ads for Data Recovery services. The next few pages I looked at did not match what I had witnessed all those years ago.
As I understood it, the physical track on the cylinder surface was not fully covered by the recording head. This left a residual magnetic trace of 0's and 1's at the 'edges' of each track. So after the "erasure", the engineer slightly changed the head alignment until signals could be viewed on an oscilloscope. At that point a good percentage of the "security erased" data was recovered.
The date was not April 1st, and the engineer, a colleague, had nothing to gain, so if it was a hoax then it was a fairly elaborate one with zero payback.
I am not a hardware 'engineer' so I hope that describes the principle well enough. I am guessing that by using a more random pattern during the erase cycles, that would sufficiently 'garble' the edge of track data to make the method unviable.
I'm afraid the best tool for HDD or SSD data destruction does not run on Windoze, or any OS, not even Linux (gasp!) - First take a 20lb hammer, apply protective goggles and other safety equipment to yourself... then beat the living daylights out of it until it is dust. Then burn the dust. That method also has a side effect; it is said to be great stress reliever!
Just my two cents (two old British 'Pennies' even)
