need to wipe hard driver after this disaster

  laptopdunce 15:14 04 Jul 2017

following up to the W8 laptop disaster, which I find now doesnt work on bluetooth and now keeps shutting down and doing auto repair, I need to just wipe everything on the HD on this laptop and post it on ebay, what is the best way to make everything disappear? should I use the CCleaner wipe facility? and/or format the drive to original settings? thanks laptopdunce

  1. Keep the drive and use in an external caddy as extra storage

  2. Reset too factory settings (might even cure the bluetooth and USB problems)

Install CCleaner, Then use the wipe free space. If it wipes recovery partition then its no biggy for you as your dumping it.
