I always wanted to say "Please, once is enough! Don't you be giving it to me again!".


....or am I the only one?

I like the way you think:


WIPING a Computer hard drive with a shotgun - YouTube

Too bad that I do not own any firearms (if you knew me, you would know why I don't want one either!).

Nope. This will delete everything, OS included. You'll have to reinstall Windows from scratch. Now, DBAN is something that you would use if you're giving the computer away and don't know if the receiving person will attempt to recover the data. If the laptop will stay in your family and you don't expect your granddaughter to try to recover deleted files and break into your bank account, then you should fine just deleting the files and emptying the trashcan.
