my netbook came with win 7 starter, and i want to sell it with win 7 starter. i can clear most of my personal files but still am concerned about security a little bit. is there anything i can/should do to ensure that my files are deleted and that a new user cannot gain access to them? win 7 starter does not come with a reinstallation method, so i can't format and reinstall. thanks for the help.
most vendors put the restore image on the hard drive in another partion. you have hit a key at post to start the restore or make the disk. with a netbook you might need to make the disk first then using another pc with a cr-rom use microsoft iso to usb software to pout the iso imahe on a usb stick.
