  3. ok, that is an old utility seems like the latest revision though. since il be doing it in dos is this 2004-2008 utility work just fine?
  4. It will work just fine
  5. should I use secure erase or enhanced secure erase? I read this from the readme and cant decide

    Q: What is the difference between secure erase and enhanced secure erase?

    A: Secure erase overwrites all user data areas with binary zeroes. Enhanced
    secure erase writes predetermined data patterns (set by the manufacturer) to
    all user data areas, including sectors that are no longer in use due to
    reallocation. ***NOTE: the enhanced secure erase option is not supported by
    all ATA drives.
  6. the secure erase will be fine.
