    1- Backup all of them your files before formating
    2- If the old hard drive is still have OS, check the OS have something required ( product key on windows and more etc,… )

    My teacher is so bad and doesn't know what she is teaching to the point where she asked us to include what we learned about the sponser.. wtf.

  9. Good advice! Electronics that go to landfill poisons the ground and groundwater! Recycle! Our City has a drop-off point at the reclamation yard for no cost. Electronics, batteries, light bulbs, used oil, and so on! My property tax funds this. 🙂

  10. My city also has recycled pickup of paper, plastic, glass, and metal items with garbage pickup funded threw the water and sewer bill. I sell to recycle like aluminum and copper and even steel. And I compost so my garbage that goes to the landfill or incinerator id very little. Yard waste is also picked up to make mulch that is free to pick up at the landfill yard. Broken glass can be picked up or dropped off in a special bin to not pose a threat to sanitation workers. 🙂 Good video!

    fact is the recycling centers make a ton of money off of electronic component that feed your charges just adore government is a bunch of fascists that likes to tax you to death

    Our company disposes of a lot of e-waste (computers, laptops, smartphones, servers, etc.), which we bring to a recycling center. I usually sift through the e-waste a day or two before, check what is working and what isn't and take the working and still usable "e-waste" with me to spruce it up and sell. From the non-working e-waste I remove components (RAM, CPU, expansion cards, even laptop screens, etc.) and sell them on eBay. Our company still gets rid of the e-waste, I save working components from being destroyed, make a tidy profit and others get working hardware for a low price. And nothing is wasted.

  13. MsAkiman says:

    they should do more on this stuff

  14. You should preface your video with the COUNTRY you are referring to. E-waste recycling is different based on country.

  15. Fortino J says:

    In my city doesn't have any recycling center for electronics trash

  16. Me old electronics dont trow to trash i make some wierd things about old electronic part and sell them😎😎😎

  17. Just feels like a massive waste for all that electronic equipment to just be dumped into a hole, especially when you consider the amount of time and effort is put into making them…

  18. Never knew that music will be used in the batman trailer
