Need to send hard drive back to WD for RMA? Need a program to wipe out data!

My hard drive failed and it got like important data which I need it to be erased before sending it for RMA. What program can I use for that? It's my first time sending it in and my hard drive is failing because it makes ticking sounds. I want to wipe out the data so they can't recover but also don't want to void the warranty. Your advise is appreciated!

  2. @ USAFRet - Would that damage the disc from unable to send for warranty? Just want to make sure I am not voiding warranty. Thanks!!
