Hi @drasine ,

Do you mean a Dell Precision m4600 laptop or a Dell Dimension 4600 desktop computer?

I cannot find any information about a Dell Inspiron 4600.


If it is just removing the physical HDD and is dell dimension 4600, below the cpu casing, there are screws holding on it.

Hi @drasine

You can consider downloading tools like Hiren

Once you had downloaded, you can have the option to burn it into a cd or to usb thumbdrive (preferred as it is fast).

You will need another working computer to do so.

There is a tool in hiren you can use to format it.

Hard Disk Tools – Security

HDD Low Level Format Tool v4.40

For a less secure method, you can download windows 10 installer from microsoft, once download is completed, you can either burn it to a disk or usb, which usb is preferred as it is faster. boot it up and delete all partition. After which, you do a clean windows installation over.

For a secure erase, i know there is a tool which can help, but it is not cost effective for you, like wibetech hdd eraser, without a need of pc.

else if it is a concern, and there is no much option left, i would rather you remove the hdd
