I've seen your correction, but I still don't understand where 
this .Trash-root directory comes from.

The user says that he's running CentOS 5.7 and Gnome, but under Gnome 
the trash directory is simply named .Trash, not .Trash-root, and 
deleting a file from an NTFS file system mounted under Linux doesn't 
move it to .Trash.

Anyway, I think we can all agree that if the hard disk will be replaced, 
it's better to overwrite the entire disk, using shred or dd (as John R. 
Pierce suggested), or a Windows utility.
