  1. Erasing all the data.


    What rubbish is this ? How can Microsoft do this without prior info or notice ? Do you even know how much crucial data can be on someone's laptop ? I'm having windows 10 and last night it got updated after that when I opened it in the morning all the data was erased. I mean how can Microsoft be so irresponsible? And yes there is no windows.old folder in my c drive or anywhere else.

    :)

    Finally! An alternative to eraser...

    it looks much cleaner then the eraser so that is a big step up.

  4. Erasing all the data.

    Remote erasing of data on lost phone

    I have misplaced my phone while travelling in China.

    Attempts to call the phone were unsuccessful, suggesting that either the phone was switched off or that the SIM card was removed/.

    I called my phone service provider to deactivate the number.

    i tried to login to my windows account to erase the data on my phone but got a message that it was unsucessful.

    My questions are,

    1) will I still be able to the erase the data remotely if the person who picked up my phone had replaced the SIM card

    2) will I still be able to the erase the data remotely if my number was deactivated by my service provider

    3) what else, if anything, could I do to wipe any data ( e.g. Contact list, messages, whatsap messages etc.) from the phone?

    Unfortunately, a passcode is not required to unlock my phone,

    i'm not sure I have wifi access to check the replies for the next few days, but any advices on this matter is much appreciated.
