Hi, I'm looking for software or hardware that can run and allows for wiping USB drives.

I currently use dban but I'm looking for something a little more plug and erase.

Thanks in advance.

It feels like I've tried a hundred different wiping tools over the years, although the real number is probably closer to a dozen. The only one I've found that lets me do what needs to be done every single time is WinHex.

It's a full blown disk editor so wiping is just one of its functions. I also can't tell you that it's the most intuitive tool you'll ever use, not at first, but once you understand how it works, you can do the job. Every time.
