I know this has been asked before but I can't find any post relating to my exact situation.

I am planning to sell my macbook pro (bought mid-2009). I don't have the installation CD with me. I can't even remember what OS X it was.


Anyway, my current OS version is Mountain Lion 10.8.3 and since I don't have my old CD and for a better resale value, I would like the OS X Mountain Lion retained. Again, I have no choice as I don't have the installation CD (I moved country).


I know it is not the most secured but is there any way I would be able to erase only a few areas of my HD like Document, Photos, Music, Movies, Download folders?


I have de-authorised my Itunes, Icloud, Imessage already and cleared all my Internet browser caches.

    If you upgraded to Lion and/or Mountain Lion by buying it from the Mac App Store you are not legally allowed to transfer that software.


    You have to return the system to the OS that was running on it when you bought it new. If you no longer have the original install DVD's you can get them from Apple for a nominal fee.
