I want to sell my used HP laptop. I have created a system image and recovery disc. I have installed a new hard drive and used recovery disc and system image. All works well on new HDD. My question is: will the new HDD have copies of my deleted personal files pictures etc copied from the system image. Thank you in anticipation.

Yes if you took an image of the hdd drive and then restored it to the new hard drive it will be exactly the same.

Piut in the orginal drive. Reset the Laptop to factory settings.

download and install CCleaner and run Drive WIper to wipe free space on the drive
