    Hi Guys,

    I've sold my Macbook and wondered what was the best way to make sure the HD is totally clean before sending it to the new owner?

    Will a OS restore be enough?


    Thanks Matt

    Boot from the install disc and open Disk Utility and perform a secure erase of the HD. Zero or 7-pass should be fine

    This. After that and only that can you go on reinstall the OS.
