Okay, so i have a new laptop. And i wanna give my old laptop to my mom. But i want all my files and stuff off it. Kind of like a reformat. How would i go about that? Even if i use the return to factory settings option.. i heard some files and settings might be recoverable...

I heard i should use DBAN (dariks boot and nuke) program...

just reformat it, you'll be fine. That overwrites everything anyhow.
