Looking for an efficient way to wipe out (permanently delete or physically destroy) a hard drive
Posted on 2011-02-25
I will need to send 6 computers to recycle. What is the efficient way to destroy the data on the hard drive?
I've heard of DBAN. I have the feeling that it may take long time to finish according to what I understand how it works. The hard drives in those computers are all less than 80GB. I am wondering how long it'll take to run DBAN against one of them. If it takes minutes, it will be acceptable. Otherwise, I think I will need another solution.
Any thoughts, my friends?
