How to wipe iPhone cleanly

"Erase all content" means all of YOUR content, including all applications you have downloaded and all the data for those applications and all the data for Apple applications (i.e. Mail, Photos, Calendar, Safari, etc.) will not be completely removed from the device, they still remain on your iPhone and can be easily recovered by some iPhone data recovery.

I highly recommend you to try Safewiper iPhone data eraser app to complete your iPhone data, it will be the best choice when you need to sell your old iPhone or iPad.

My hudl2 will not power up after a software update
All user data including music and photos will be removed during this process. NOTE: This action is sufficient if you are going to continue using the device after it has been performed. However, if you intend to sell, give away or otherwise dispose of the device, we recommend that you take further measures to ensure that all data has been completely wiped as the Android system can sometimes retain personal data which can be recovered by an expert.

How to wipe a hard drive

Easiest was is to reformat the drive or reinstall your windows OS as a new install. Either way, will reformat the C: drive and wipe all data from the drive. You may have a security program that allows you to shred data. That, too, will work as it actually removes data rather than just removing the indexing files pointing to the date, such as emptying your waste basket does.

I want to destroy the phone memory because 1 month before my N72 was fell down in water after that i used to kept in sun rays,After that it works properly but after 1 month it get hanged and did not...

Hi, Shweta. The personal data in the Phone Memory like Contacts, SMS, MMS, Videos...etc can be deleted by the method of Flashing. Flashing the phone memory will re-install the Phone's Operating System (Symbian OS). Since your phone is turning on, flashing the phone will make the phone work normal just like a new phone. I don't think you'll sell it to someone if it is working properly. Please Flash your cellphone in any Mobile Service Center (not nokia service center).

Factory settings?

First step should be to reformat the drive as this will clean out the physically allocated files, or try using FDISK

Factory settings?

1. If you use the system recovery and go into advanced, it will erase all personal data and all programs installed, putting it back to the way it was when you first purchased the computer.
2. To get to the system recovery on an hp, you press the key that is indicated during bootup, either F10 for older ones or F11 on the newer ones. It will boot into the recovery mode from where you select the advanced option. It will give you a warning that all your personal information will be gone.

Thank you and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thanks.
