Default Wiping clean old computers

You can use the restore disk to wipe the disks clean.

The Eagle Scouts in Nashua 'clean' old computers and if it can be or is Windows 10, they will redistribute to nonprofits, students, etc.

If they have the old OS, you can upgrade them to Windows 10 and wipe all data at the same time. Instructions are online.

If computers cannot be upgraded, I believe one of the civic clubs take them apart and make new upgraded computers eligible for the upgrade. I can't remember which one.

I've been restoring old computers and give them to charity for years.
Someday may never be an actual day.
