I have previously used two such free utilities,

1. Disk Redactor is WIPE utility, that prevent restoration of the old ( deleted ) files at your disks. All free space at your hard disk will be wiped from an old information.

2. Restoration it restores deleted files as well as has another function that makes it almost impossible to restore all deleted files.

Hello dxvii,
Well, I use a program called darik's boot and nuke (dban) that is available over here. So basically what it does is zero erases the drive... (i.e. turns all the binary codes to zero... you know what I mean...) so yeah it should be able to get rid of everything on your hard drive.
