If not, you can send us the Notebooks and we will wipe the data for you. For more information view HP Secure Erase: Securely Erasing SSDs.

A: Yes, all of data on the USB Flash Drive will be erased and replaced with the HP Refresh Software. In addition, HP warns the user prior to wiping out the USB Flash Drive, that the data will be erased.
