Hi all.

I may be about to leave my workplace on an amicable basis. Rather than trying to delete everything on my machine (Dell Optiplex GX1, 500 Mhz P3) I would like to simply format my C drive. I have been led to believe that data can be recovered if simply deleted but not if a drive is formatted--please correct me if I'm wrong--I know miracles can be done with recovering data. However, we are on an NT 4.0 network and everything is clamped down tight.

The reason is that I don't want anyone to take any liberties with anything on the machine.

I searched around here for a while and did not see a solution.

All help appreciated--even if it is just to say it is impossible.

Best Regards,

Bob

naim, we can give you benefit of doubt and say you're a good guy but w/out knowing what your full intentions are, niether I or anyone here on the forum will likely help you do what you want. Let's just say that I won't help you do that on a company PC and also... w/out loggin in with Admin privileges, you're optioons are next to nil.

Tushman I agree, if they are just trying to protect their personal info, they should say so.
