Keep Personal Information Safe!
When it comes to recycling your computer, it is
important to remember to remove any and all personal information prior
to disposal or donation. Erase your hard drive to make sure all
personal data is removed. Here are some ways to do just that:
Erase the data with a disk-cleaning software. By
running a disk-erasing product multiple times ensures a complete
wipe out of any retrievable data. Software programs can be
found on-line and in most computer software and program stores.
Hire an expert. Call a reputable organization
or retailer to remove the data for you. They can do this
either with software - or physically removing the hard drive.
Remove the hard drive. (You could also add the old
drive to the new computer for access to old files of for extra
memory space.) Call you computer dealer or local technician who can
walk you through the process.
