Lease turn-in cleaning

By danwiese ·
Excuse the kindergarten level question, but I'm a one-man company trying to be my own computer consultant. When I turn in a computer at lease end how do I clean everything off the computer? Does formatting the hard drive get rid of everything on thecomputer? Thanks!

Yes, formatting the drive will erase everything. Also Partition Magic, I think 4 or higher has a utility to wipe out drives.

I usually do a full format and restore of any equipment I turn in. It serves two purposes, returning the equipment exactly as I received it and removing personal info.
