Yep. We always taught that if you don't grind it to dust or melt it to slag, it *can* be recovered.

He wants to keep the drive as is - he just needs to delete any identity theft data. The guy buying it wants a working OS with all the productivity stuff installed, and the OP doesn't have install media or keys to start fresh. Privazer (or whatever else he decides to try) will do this. Best he can do in this situation.

Interesting. The fact that they only accept/store encrypted prevents a Tormail like seizure being as bad.

So, drill holes then install the OS and productivity tools?

Oops, I didn't realize he was keeping it around for re-use. Roll back the holes, if you've drilled them

More fun in the land of Data Security and Privacy. This time, related to the mass amounts of data your ISP (to include cell carrier) cull from your web searches. Using a service like DuckDuckGo is a good first step. This + VPN is solid.

VPN is a must. Auto Start and Auto-Connect. Even picking a close US Server is better than your ISP having all your stuff (especially if you also use their DNS).
