    Once I have removed all the data on my hard drive via "Update & Security" and "Reset this PC", so that only Windows 10 remains, is it safe to give this hard drive to someone else for re-use or can an expert still retrieve the data that used to be on this hard drive?

    CCleaner has a free space wipe tool.

    However, if the hard drive used to hold secret level data, then you want a military grade disk wiping tool. Like this one: http://www.diskwipe.org
