Hello Natasha...There is software available that will remove files and data that people use a lot.
However...the files are not actually gone until another file is written to the same location on the disk. Until that happens the files can be recovered using tools like GetDataBack & PC Inspector File Recovery or a hacker. To permanently delete files you must use a program that overwrites the "empty" space on the hard drive destroying the original content.
Personally...if i was selling a computer i would reformat and reinstall OS.
Good luck...i hope this helps.

Want to restore to factory settings?

After some research, it appears that you may have been supplied with recovery media, which would require you to attach an external CD drive. Or there is a function call Samsung Recovery solution. If this is supplied with our computer, you may have a partition on your hard drive that will restore you computer to factory settings. Unfortunately, I cannot locate the exact instructions to access the Samsung Recovery Solution. Are you familiar with this utility? I have attached a internet link to a page to download your user manual. You will find the download links for either Windows XP or windows 7 on the lower part of the page that loads from this link.

I hope that you find this helpful. Without more detail about your particular set up, it is hard to be more specific.

How do you reset the samsung NP-NC10 netbook to factory settings?

If you have only used Windows and associated programs, (Not loaded Linux or other OS types)...
Just start your computer and hold your finger near the [F4] button -
as soon as the Samsung screen pops up click that button.
The Recovery screen will show, choose Restore, then Complete Restore
the program completely deletes the C; Drive and reloads Windows and the other programs - same as it was the very first time it was set up.
Note. If it was set up as C: and D: drives (one of the initial choices which you do not get during Restore) - this Restoration DOES NOT TOUCH or HARM any of the Files/Folders on the D: Drive...
So, If you're Restoring to sell - Go to My Computer Right Click the D: Drive and Choose FORMAT - you'll get a warning about files being deleted/losing all data - but that's what you want - go ahead and click OK.
IF you're doing it because Windows crashed and burned - It's OK; all the stuff will still be there on the D: Drive...
