Seeing that you are reformating, go to Seagate and get the MAXBlast software.
Works well on many drive manufacturers. Goto:

Got Hitachi? goto:

If you have a full-version cd of your operating system, I would recommend that you use DBAN v1.0.7 to completely wipe your hd. It is a freeware download, but be warned that it will completely wipe your hd. You will be left with nothing on it except the boot sector. Most full-version cd's will format your hd for you, then continue with the setup. I wish you luck.
