Restore a laptop to factory fresh

  jimmylove 14:15 30 Jul 2005

I'm about to give away a Sony Vaio laptop I no longer need and would like to present it in an 'as new' condition. I have the recovery disk - what is the best way to wipe all the data except the OS?

The recovery disk will restore the laptop to as bought all data you put on will be removed.
