Default Erasing data from harddrive


Hello,
I am looking for the recommendation of utilty erasing data from
harddrive.
I need the utilty which:
1. Will NOT stop on errors (disk write errors) but it will continue until
all disk is done
or
2. Will allow me to choose sectors to overwrite.
Thanks,
Fred

I tried now. It is not good.
Not only does not allow me to select clusters but it does not see my hard
drive at all!
(Partitions were removed by Western Digital utility software)

Check the manufacturer's website and see if it has a utility for
completely erasing the drive.

I use ERASER which is a boot CD & takes 8 - 72 hours to government wipe hard
drives

It does.
But unfortunately, writing "0" stops on the first writing error and on any
consecutive error asking me if I want to continue.
I need to bypass that message step, and continue automatically regardless of
errors.

Does it allow you to select sectors or will it not stop on errors?
