Wiping a hard drive in Windows 2000

By Jim Phelps ·
How do you wipe a hard drive in Windows 2000? I'd like to do something like FDISK (which isn't available in W2K), and remove the partition.

This is my secondary hard drive, not C:.

In Computer Management go to Storage and then Disk management. There you can format drives, create and delete partitions.

That was what I needed.

It seems that everytime Micro$oft releases a new version of software, O/S, etc., they move some vital function (e.g. FDISK)to an obscure location.

Another example of this is Outlook. Try to find SERVICES in the latest version, for the purpose of creating / modifying personal folders. There's some other way to do it in the latest version. I wasted lots of time tracking down the new way of doing it.

I guess when you are a monopoly who controls the whole ball game, you can change whatever you want, whenever you want.

Micro$oft refers to this as "Freedom to Innovate".

Hey,

If you go to this webpage it has a link to download the The Windows NT Resource Kit which includes delpart.exe.

Sorry, I need a program or a function already in Windows. My company policy forbids downloading utilities off the internet to use in these kinds of situations.
