I need to get rid of my old pc but want to make sure that any data and files in their can't be recovered.
It runs Windows xp and is so old I can't get it to connect the inter anymore.
I have read dban is a tool that will destroy things properly but I can't dl to the pc as cant connect to web, I've downloaded it on anotother pc to a usb stick. Can I boot it from the USB stick and get it to run on the pc I want to wipe?
The pc won't be used again so I don't need it to work so doesn't matter if it wipes windows or drivers etc.
I don't have a disc for the pc anymore.
Failing that can anyone suggest any other methods that would ensure date and files are unrecoverable
