    I would like to sell my laptop on craigslist, but I'm not sure how to safeguard myself. I will be removing all my pictures, music and personal files but can't those be recovered somehow?

    I don't have the original vista disc, as it didn't come with the computer (I bought used). How do I protect myself from someone getting information on me when it's gone?

    you're probably need something like data-be-gone. not sure how well it works though.

    Just replace the hard disk, or sell it without one.
