    There may be an easier way but the above should work.

    Edit: Here is another method you could try, not sure if it will work but it's used to access the USB drive if your Pre's touchscreen doesn't work:

    Hook up your Pre to a computer with a USB cable and hit Option + Sym + U (for USB) and see if the Pre will mount as a USB drive. You then have access to your files which you can delete BUT if you want to do a secure delete (remove all traces), you may need a 3rd party "file shredding" program.
    I can only get to usb by removing battery + hook up usb cable + holding volume up button. This will back allow WebOS Doctor but PC/Mac won't recognize usb plugged in. Tried the Orange+Sym+U but = no go. I'm afraid I'll need to take your first recommendation. Thanks for the help!!
