“I have an iMac with the latest Mountain Lion operation system installed. But due to a specific reason, I plan to give it to my friend as a gift. I have many sensitive data generated on the machine so I want to wipe everything clean and start with a fresh install. I just wanna delete everything and most importantly – without any possibility to be restored. Please show me how to do. Or is there any easy program to get the job done?”

Caution: normal format or system reinstallation won’t be necessary to get rid of all data on the Mac hard drive, the best way is to opt for a 3rd party Mac wipe utility to clean & erase all files with zero recovery chances.
