My daughter is selling on her computer. Whats the best way to clean up the h/d prior to passing it on.

The safest way is to reformat the hard drive then reinstall windows (if you have the disk). If not, there are numerous free programmes to delete data while leaving the operating system intact.

Thanks chaps.
The free programs option will suit me better. Can you recommend one.
