Re: Possible for malware to covertly hide on harddrive sector

The only way I know of to erase all sectors, even those not exposed to the data interface at all (not only hidden data sectors) is using something like this hardware . This will brick the drive and render it unusable!

If you are looking for a non-destructive software solution it would have to be specific for every situation (how and where the data is hidden and on what kind of drive).

Cheapest thing was the ERASED stickers... and those 'aint cheap either!
