If your keeping the drive and not selling it then you can just format the drive.
The top rated free secure erase software is;

I think you are misunderstand about "wipe data", as I know the software could not clean up the previous data, but just rewrite data on the same position, so that called wipe, but not clean. No matter you format or delete the data, it was only marked as deleted by windows, but the data are still there. It is principle.
