I have a Microsoft Surface Pro that I would like to do a 'reset' on so I can re-sell it. After reading the manual, I determined I better do the thorough reset as opposed to the quick reset. What I am wondering, is will my personal data be securely UN-recoverable after doing a thorough reset?

I realize that unlike HDDs, SSDs don't store their data using magnetic media, so I assume the SSD is 'wiped' during the thorough rest. Hopefully someone can put my mind at ease.

I believe you are good to go. It should be wiped sufficiently to avoid trouble.
