Question

Removing all files on hard disk without installing new system

By berneicekulass ·

Hello Tech Republic,

This is my first thread here and I want to say hello to everybody on these forums.

I have 2 hard disks which one of them is from my old PC which has Windows 7 on it. Other one is the one I'm using on my PC.
So the problem is, I'm running out of space on my main PC but I don't want to install new system. When I plug in both hard disks at the same time, I can't run PC because there are system files on both hard disks.
My question is, is there a way to remove all files from old hard disk so I can use it on my main PC, or do I have to install new system all together?

Thanks in advance.

Try BitRaser File Erasure to remove all data from the drive

Well, you can try formatting or factory resetting your disk drive but that will not sweep out the drive’s data completely, because whether you’re permanently deleting data or formatting your hard drive or either you factory reset your device, it will not wipe your data permanently. As whenever you delete any document or file from your system or any storage device then the data is not completely wiped out from that location and the traces of those deleted files are still present on the sectors of the storage drive, until & unless it’s overwritten by any other data or else it was treated by any data erasure software to delete the file permanently.

There is a way to remove all data or files from old hard disk permanently. For that, you can use data erasure software to completely wipe out the data from your old hard disk. There are many data erasure software tools available such as BitRaser File Erasure which enable the user to wipe their drive completely and ready to re-use the drive.
