Securely destroy/wipe data on hard drives with shred

To overwrite a partition or hard drive, two examples:

shred -vfuz -n 10 /dev/md1

shred -vfuz -n 10 /dev/sda

-v: show progress

-f: change permissions to allow writing if necessary

-u: truncate and remove file after overwriting (to shred occupied space with files)

-z: add a final overwrite with zeros to hide shredding

-n: overwrite N times instead of the default (3)

So this would overwrite /dev/sda5 ten times.
