    Clean wipe a computer


    Hello,
    I would like to give away my old computer which is still working with windows 10 pro, but as you know from my previous posts, it fed me a lot of troubles.
    But first I want to "clean" all my documents, passwords kept on google chrome browser, pictures and videos, etc.
    There are two disks installed, one is devided into two partitions,"C"is the operating system, the other "D" contains data.
    The second disk is "F", one whole partition and also for data.
    I do not mind leaving the operating system, because I need it to use "Macrorit Wiper" from a usb stick , just remove all personal data as mentioned above.
    I would like to have your ideas how to do it, and if is possible to wipe also the operating system to blank the disks.
    The disks are in good shape and the computer can be used again if a legal operating system installed.
    Answers will be appreciated.
    Thanks


    :)

    How to wipe a SSD Clean

    I hate to state the obvious, but format it? *Stick Out Tongue Clean wipe a computer :p

    If you don't have a computer with an active O/S on it, you can put a Windows disk in, go to install an O/S and wipe it clean when you are prompted to. *Smile Clean wipe a computer :)

    Windows 10 infinite restart black screen


    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
