    Hi,

    First post on these forums, so...Hello!

    I am selling my Mac Mini to a mate as i don't use it much anymore and have run the Install CDs to re-install Mac OS X. When i switch the machine on now it runs the welcome program, prompting you to enter your information etc.

    My question is will this reformat/reinstall have wiped all my files from the hard drive, ie all the photos in iPhoto and music in iTunes?

    Thanks,

    iBore

    after the reinstall, go to disc utility and select a 7x overwrite of the free space
