Our N class 3000 is only used as an archive now, and we will soon be disposing of it. Now I know I can purge accounts etc, but is there a tool that will wipe off all our data?

Depending on what type of disks you have, a two by four to the disk works really well and breaks the disk. A high spped drill through the mech works too.

I was a tad sentimental about my old N-Class but dropping it out of the second floor bay doors into a skip waiting below cured me! It made a great sound.

"[...] The management, only said find some one else that will provide support when HP will no longer. So, DO NOT trash good equipment because there is still a market for it."
Several firms, including ours, provide
support for the HP 3000, now and in the future.
One of our clients has nearly two THOUSAND users logged on to their HP 3000 ... try doing that with almost any other computer!

As Stan has said, there are companies, like Allegro, who are going to be supporting the HP3000 for years to come. As a member of the Board of Directors for OpenMPE, I am aware that there are quite a few companirs doing support as well for both hardware and software. For other sources, of information, I sugggest you look at the HP3000-L listserver ot the OpenMPE website.
Please do not take the ultimate sacrifice of the disk as others may want to buy it from you.
