System memory erase

Posted: 03-06-2009, 06:52 PM
Hi, I got a new computer and I transferred everything from my old one to the
new one. The old one has Windows XP. Any idea how I can erase everything off
the hard drive before I recycle it? Thanks.

One way would be to use the reinstall media from the old PC to wipe
and reload back to factory-new condition. Another way would be to use
something like Darik's Boot And Nuke from http://www.dban.org/.
Google "wipe hard disk" for other options.

And the ultimate option is to remove the hd and use a hammer

"Recycle it"....Why,use it for storage,& 3rd party software you dont use
that much.Also,use it for the OS page-file,read kb99768 or read kb555223
