basically im building a new PC and i was wondering if i needed to wipe/reformat the HDD before using in the new PC? the HDD i have is fairly new at only a few months old but i already have windows on it.
So do i need to wipe it blank before installing it into the new system or can i just install it with the OS already on it and install the drivers for the new components normally.
At the very least you should do a reformat so you can do a fresh OS install in the new machine. If it was my machine I would go the extra step and run DBAN for a complete wipe on it before installing it into the new system and before installing the new OS.
