:thumbsup: Hi..erm..not sure if this is in the right place to be honest..forgive or move it..(or both please!) if that is so.

Anyhoo..my dad has asked me to ask how can he make sure he gets rid of personal details on his hard drives before giving/selling his Win95 and an old XP thing (his words!!).
:inlove:

He says he THINKS he as a disc for the 95 but nothing for the XP. :flowers:

I have no idea what to tell him..if anyone can help that will be fabby!! :trumpet:

You can use Active@ KillDisk to totally wipe the drive, or after deleting all of your personal information, you can use Eraser to wipe unused disc space.
