I've found over time that formatting with ext3 tends to remove most hidden partitions and data.
Formatting can be faster than trying to remove files.
with particularly troublesome drives I removed partitions with dos fdisk and created 1, formatted to dos 5 then did the same again with ext3.
The most troublesome took about 40 minutes to clean.
Is there a way to set up say 3 or 4 partitions of various sizes, format each to ext3 then remove the partitions and reformat.
