Title pretty much says it all. I have a mid-2009 MacBook Pro that I have upgraded to Mountain Lion. I will be selling it on eBay. It has 2GB memory and is loaded to the brim with personal data, images, and so forth.


I'd like to completely wipe the hard drive before selling it.


A couple questions:


1) I don't have the original OSX install disc from mid-2009

2) I downloaded Mountain Lion from the App Store, so no disc there either.

3) I purchased a MacBook Air in mid-2012. If it came with install discs, I can probably find them. (but would this screw things up?)


If there is another way to delete all my data, I'd be interested to hear.
