    btw, when the feds ask why you just thermited your computer, be all like what do you mean? i was ocing... see if they fall for it..

    and dont forget to hit your ram/proc with termite while your at it i mean if your worried enough to burn the drives as the feds walk through your door....might be worried about the current working data as well

    also fun, just for the heck of it...

    you'd have to zero all of the drivers 128 times to make sure that no data remains.. but its best just to microwave the drive

    haha, this has become somewhat amusing. :)
    I doubt I will be needing a lawyer, I sold him drives (That I had already formatted). If he does tell them everything what is he going to say about me? Let me tell you if I was the one booting things I would hope to have a better system than the one I have.

    I think he just destroyed his life. I had a Graphic Design Class with him at a Tech College 2 years ago. After that he moved to another town so we did not hang out but kept in touch, Probably a good thing.

    lol, circuit city. Good times, the FBI would not come for that, thats like the ripping your tag off a mattress level in trouble.

    Im still selling my 250Gb drives btw...I like money more than I dont like the risk..

    data can only be recovered if it hasn't been overwritten multiple times(fbi can recover some overwritten data)... so if you were to overwrite the drive complete with bs and then zero it multiple times, then you have nothing to fear.

    In my experiance people dont even like to buy zero formatted drives because they think they will not function as well/will have a shorter life.

    They have no proof of you doing any thing of the sort, UNLESS your saying you have bootleg gear at home.

    Well you do not have to be the one who burned it on a CD \ DVD. As long as you do not and have not owned bootleg software and any thing else that could put you in the slammer you be fine.

    i'd have to say it depends on what was on the drives that will make the decision on this one.

    if you had 1tb of porn then i think your fine. if it's 800gigs of software, music, and movies that you dont own a physical copy of then your F**KED.

    if you own a physical copy of more then 60% of what you had on the drive then your good.

    if it was loaded with cracks, serials, keygens and other similar items then your not good either.
