Hi!

I am going to sell my desktop which cointains one HDD and one SSD, where Windows is installed on the SSD. I want to delete every file and documents on my SSD and HDD, but also make it so the owner gets Windows 10.

- How do I do this? And whats the best solution to delete everything on my SSD and HDD? Is it to use secure erase on my SSD (Magician) and do a Windows Uninstall for my HDD?

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Make and models of both the SSD and HDD? The license key should be tethered to the BIOS of your desktop's motherboard so at this point you merely need to worry about Secure Erasing the drives, then reinstall the OS after fabricating it with Windows Media Creation Tools.
