Clear out Old Files

  User-E70658AE-BDD7-4DD5-AE5EE3B7769D7D2C 09:30 15 Nov 2008

I have a laptop I used for work and now wish to loan it to a family member. I have backed up all my work documentation, photos etc and loaded on to another computer. How do I clear the laptop of all files to ensure that no confidential information remains on the laptop.

Thank you.

Delete them all, then wipe free space using Eraser
