Hi,

I have an old Tesco Hudl 1 tablet that I am thinking of giving to a nephew. I need advice as to how to make any data stored on this tablet essentially unrecoverable.

I am aware that in many instances and particularly with the Hudl 1 that a factory reset will not suffice. The Hudl 1 does not have an encryption facility and this makes me wary of what I can actually do to make any data marked on the internal memory unrecoverable.

I was wondering if I filled the memory with dummy or other data and then did a factory reset immediately after (and repeated this process multiple times) whether the info previously marked on the disc would thus to all intents and purposes be beyond recovery for anyone with access to easily available recovery software on the net.

Many thanks for your time. Any information you can provide will be most gratefully received.

Yes, overwriting the original data multiple times would render it unrecoverable.

Many, many thanks for your speedy response. Will do this half a dozen times or so now in the knowledge that my data is gone forever. Again thank you.
