The biggest bottleneck will be how you connect it to the computer: USB2.0, USB3.0, Firewire, other.

The quickest way, you would physically connect your drives with either Sata or IDE (depending on the age of these drives, and if your power suppy has the right connectors), then formatting them with windows or specific software, otherwise, search through the drive and delete specific files manually. However, You can also just plug the drives into a Hard drive dock (obviously if you have one), then use the drives as per normal.
