Everyone needs to upgrade once in a while and in doing so, some always have to make the choice of selling their old stuff. The same goes when wanting to buy a new model of laptop or computer.

But little did we know that this isn’t very safe especially if we tend to just give away our laptops or netbooks without reformat. Thus, it is a must to erase hard drive files and contents. If you don’t bad things can happen and I’m sure everyone agrees with that.

This is why make sure you clean up your laptops before you sell them off, that way you are safe and sound if you have some files there that are private or confidential.
