Bye-bye, you old clunker!

QI got a new computer for Christmas. I'm going to give my old computer to a neighbor. She's nice, so I wouldn't expect any problems. What should be done to this computer before I hand it over?

AWell, I'm glad to hear that you can put your old computer to work. And I'll bet your neighbor will be thankful. Just the same, I'd approach this with caution. You don't know who will have access to your machine.

You've got a lot more stuff on your hard drive than you think. Deleting things does not make them go away. The indexing apparatus is broken. And the disk areas of deleted data are cleared for overwriting. But the deleted data is still there until it is overwritten.

Now, a person with half a brain and enough curiosity can find that stuff. There are programs available online to do that. Even if you format the disk, someone might find something.
