LarrakiaTom 17:51 25 Sep 2018 Locked Hi All, I have a 2015 13 inch macbook pro which unfortunately has a damaged logic board, and as I can't afford to pay £600 to replace I want to try to sell for spares/repairs. My concern is as I have no way of formatting the HD, is the data on there secure?? I seem to remember that apple started encrypting HDs as default. There most likely isn't any sensitive data on there, but you can't be too sure. thanks in advance. This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
