Typing format c: at the command prompt will do it every time, first PC mistake I ever made 18 years ago.

Do you want it wiping or wiping so that nothing can ever be recovered from what is now on it.

I use KillDisk, just download the program, burn a disc (or copy to USB pen), boot from it and follow the prompts, formatted, wiped, and they're not pulling anything back.
