    Wipe My Computer Clean


    Currently, I am preparing my computer to return to an employer. We were allowed to use it for personal use however some word documents that were for personal use were placed on the desktop. I've since cut those personal docs from the desktop and pasted to my thumb drive. My question is, if I wipe the computer clean will those personal word docs be available to be viewed? Also if I change the original content of the personal document, which version if any will be available after the wipe? By wiping, I mean going to recovery and permanently removing all files and apps.

    :)

    Your report suggests that your installation has suffered some damage which prevents Windows from doing a reset. In such stubborn cases I would do this:

    1. Create a new media installation disk:

      http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install
    2. Run setup.exe on this disk.
    It would wipe everything, including your data and all applications.

    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 Wipe My Computer Clean :)
