Computer Info - Deleting a Hard Drive

Hi There!

Just received a few good links, on how to DELETE your Hard Drive... Thought I'd share them with you. *s*

Now, in the past, I've blogged about how to SAVE your info, on your computer.

This info is for DELETING... PERMANENTLY you Hard Drive.... should you wish to give your computer away, or sell it... or whatever.

Hope this helps!

Microsoft - Clean the Hard Drive Before Dumping Your PC

I found this well written, great suggestions and, most importantly, easy to understand.

From CNet - PC Hardware: Erase Hard Drive Permanently on Widows XP OS
Another interesting chat forum, on this topic - and they too, give you a few suggestions or links for software.

RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) - PDF file
These people also have some interesting blah-blah to read and recommend a few sites, too.

Remember... this is info on how to DELETE your HD..... *grin*

Have a great weekend!

Good info, Rosa; thank u for posting the links. When I donated a system awhile back, I removed the HD and 'fixed' it with a hammer. LOL. Your idea is much better! lol.
ps: i put a new small HD in the donated system ;-)
