Do you already have a os on this drive?

 

WIth win10 you can do a reset and there is a option to delete empty space and that will make it very hard to undelete.

Honestly, if you have windows 10 just reinstall windows and secure wipe the drive while you're at it. (Windows will automatically reactivate when you get it connected to the internet.)
