Hello,
If one is installing a new SSD why would you need to run a secure erase as is recommended by most authors?

  1. Never heard of it.
  2. "recommended by most authors" Show some articles, I'm curious as to what this means. I have never done anything but format & change bios. check this out:

    Its suggested to do if your having difficulty with an installation or if you plan to sell a drive you previously used for security. Otherwise its certainly not important for a new disk.
