@anonymously99,
That was funny, thanks for the laugh Laughing

Honestly, I only tried to delete info from the hard drive and keep a computer 1 time. There was an option to re-write over it 35 times. It was years ago and so I don't know if I am using the correct terminology. Btw, it was a mac and I think it worked.

99 I'm not sure you want to say, "completely" as there are different kinds of mem, some of permanent value which you can't get along without

However can understand your frustration with the nasty kind. One of these days I'm gonna have my sons clean out mine

It isn't something you should try to do without previous experience and hands on guidance from someone who does.

Take it to a local computer store and pay to have them do it for you. Doing so means you'll be without a computer for just a few days rather than permanently due to a costly mistake.

@Butrflynet,
I agree, except what can happen permanently? What is so important on your computer, that you/someone can't do without?

You should be much more clear about what you are asking about. Your terminology implies you want the result to be a completely blank hard drive without an operating system. This can be achieved by reformatting the hard drive and will require reinstallation of the operating system and all software programs and backed up data files. It is a long process and can take up to a week to complete.

Is that what you wish to have done?

Photographs (especially those taken digitally), letters, family history, medical history, etc.

I started by deleting then deleting again what was sent to the recycle.

Simply deleting won't delete anything. Emptying the trash won't delete it.

In order to get rid of all those "incriminating" files you will need to do a wipe of your hard drive using a Department of Defense approved procedure.

@parados,
Before he/she does anything, she/he needs to figure out and then describe what is to be accomplished.


He/she seems unable to do so, thus the suggestion to have an expert do it.

Have you applied for approval from the Department of Defense?
