Here's one from the archives. A friend has asked me to help her wipe the hard disk of a Mac SE30 before she recycles it to a local school. Apparently she has all her 'love letters' on it! I don't about OS operations that early in the Mac's history. Is there a quick and easy way?<br><br>Thanks.<br><br>

Do you want to completely wipe it or just delete files? If you want to wipe it completely you will need to format it and will also need system disks to boot off so you can wipe the disk and also to reinstall the system formating on the system will be the same as doing so in any other Mac OS either select erase from the menu bar or use the disk utility do do it.<br><br><br><br><br>Without sensibility no object would be given to us, without understanding no object would be thought.

I just did this! It was a lot of fun. My local user group ended up giving it away as a fund-raiser for the charity we work with. <br><br>But if a class can get some use out of it, by all means donate it to the school.<br><br>
