With HD size increasing, I am not sure if users are educated to protect and totally clean up data, pix, music and movies. In the case, it is the clean up job; I once got a 120GB used HD from eBay with tons of MP3 still there. I'm not surprised to find people leaving family pictures, home made video clips and important data in their abandoned HD. Certain recovery softwares will restore deleted pix and data.

I personally like to a couple of small partitions to store pictures and data so that I could reformat on a timely basis not leaving any trace on certain unwanted (once important data) information for my eyes only.

format is not enough, not by a long shot, you need to overwrite the data with 0/1 several times for it become impossible to restore.
