Most 'data' is only overwritten by a 0 with some of these domestic programs. A domestic and free program called 'Pandora' will show what is still recoverable after deletion.
Think of it as a transaction of responsibility instead of just money. Someone else does it, someone else gets blamed for any problems that may come from it, within the warranty period.

A lot of people could save so much money if they learned to do basic maintenance of what they own but that requires effort :/
