I've thought about it. But most likely the new owner would be standing over my shoulder to make sure I didn't do something like that. I don't think he expects me to be able to retrieve the file. Rather he is just allowing me time with the computer so that if we do pursue legal action he has something to fall back on. He's in for a surprise!
I will try running Ubuntu off a cd. Thanks!
