    Erasing/Deleting MacBook Pro Hard Drive
    I'm sure this has already been asked, but I going to sell my MacBook Pro and would like to find out how to delete/erase/get rid of private information on my hard drive.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.....

    Specs:
    iMac i5 2.7GHz, 16GB memory, OS 10.10.5
    And this is on what model, what operating system? If Snow Leopard or earlier, use your DVD, boot from it, and run erase. If later use Recovery.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
