I am selling an old Toshiba computer laptop that has Vista installed. I want to sell it after wiping all my files from the HD.
I see several methods and programs that will do this. If I use a program like KillDisk to clean everything off, will the Vista Home Premium operating system still be there? I seem to have lost any other CD except one I made when I updated from XP long ago. It is two system recovery disks, Vista Home Premium SP1. Not sure if it is usable.
I don't want to delete everything and not be able to have the Vista system in it so someone else can make use of it. Would I be better to just delete every file and folder? Or run the KillDisk.
Should I just REFORMAT? What would that do?
Thanks for any answers.
