Run the disk manufacturer's diagnostic utility on it, those tools usually have options to zero fill or erase a disk. If it is a NAS, then use the NAS's setup utility to delete the disk's contents.

HD's don't have "reset buttons", so yours is likely a NAS, and the reset only has reset the NAS's embedded OS to it's default settings.
