    I have a Mac MINI that I am replacing and want to wipe the hard drive before I sell it. I have down loaded directions on the procedure but am unsure if I need to disconnect the peripherals (sp?) before I do it as well as reload the Snow Leopard O/S. Thanks :confused:

    which peripherals exactly? leave the keyboard and mouse in, you will need those. But you can remove any other devices, especially flashdrives and external hardrives, you dont want to wipe any of those by accident.

    Yes I realized that I would need the keyboard and mouse but wasn't sure about the printer. But better safe than sorry. Appreciate it.
