Sorry for the late post. But back to the original OP question.Can you use DBaN on a SSD?
He had a OCZ SSD, which Sanitary Erase is for.
But what about an Intel SSD (i.e X25-V 40GB), or any others for that matter.
Can you use DBan for that? And I would want to use the "write 0's" option?I tried HDDErase, but couldn't boot from a USB, like linked directions instructed. (I don't have a floppy.)
I think I need to burn a Windows XP Boot disk, so I can use all "these" DOS based programs....but that's off topic.
P.S. Currentlty running "Secure Erase" on an old machine I'm going to sell. Formatted as floppy (on my Dell) w/MS-DOS start up files, and copied HDDErase. Currently running, I think, no progress screen like DBaN. I don't want to turn it off, as it will "lock" my hard drives? Again, off topic. BTW: I'll let you know how long it takes "being the fastest erase program." Erasing a 40GB and a 120GB HDD.
P.P.S Secure Erase (HDDERase v3.0?)
didn't work. I believe its because my hard drives are on another (onboard) IDE controller (Promise Ultra ATA 100)
. But DBan does work (although slow), and I nuked 'em (took over 12 hours)! I give up on Secure Erase.
