Hi Folks I have replaced my 2.16GHz 20" iMac but before I dispose of it I want to ensure that any data, especially of a confidential nature is cleared from the hard drive. In simple terms, how do I go about this please?
(I hope this is in the correct topic box.)
imac 27* 2.8 GHz Intel Quad Core i7, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
Restart from a Mac OS X install DVD, choose Disk Utility from the Utilities menu, and erase the drive while choosing to zero all data or perform multiple overwrite passes. You may want to install an OS afterwards.
