How to Wipe Out Hard Drive And Reinstall Windows

Posted on Jan 04, 2018 by Tracy King to Partition Master

How can I wipe out hard drive and reinstall Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10? EaseUS Partition Master allows 1-10 times of wipe on hard disk so that you can permanently clean up hard drive and have a clean install of Windows operating system.

"Hi experts, my HP computer has been severely infected by viruses, which bothers me for quite a long time. I attempted to format the hard drive, but nothing helps. So I'm thinking to wipe out hard drive and reinstall Windows operating system. Will it work for my case? If yes, how can I clean up the computer drive and make the viruses unrecoverable?"

Other than the case of your machine being attacked by malicious software or vicious viruses, there are some other common seen events which demand for a cleaned up computer. For example, an individual who's about to discard an old, scratched PC needs erase data on it to protect privacy; a commercial institution planning to dispose an entire batch of used computers forces a permanent disk and partition elimination, making sure that the critical information won't leak to its competitors' hands.

To wipe out hard drive and then have a clean install of Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8 or Windows 7, actually there is more than one way to realize the goal. Some computers like HP and Lenovo are included with recovery disks before they were delivered to end users, the recovery settings will reset your computer to the initial state. However, being different from wiping a hard disk, this option keeps the drivers and software installed prior to your purchase. If you decide to throw them all, now find a reliable free partition manager to help wipe disk and erase user data and applications altogether.
