Use Darik's Boot and Nuke ("DBAN") to format. The easiest option is to type autonuke.

Use the below software, its free for personal use. It uses Low level format which makes recovery almost impossible.HDD LLF Low Level Format Tool

Also if you whant to erase files when you have already reinstalled an OS you can use CCleaner (from http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard ) -> Tools -> Drive Wiper -> Wipe: Free space only. It supports different erase algorithms used by US government agencies.
