Hrmmmm.... never heard of that before. If I'm reading this right it only affects the "unused" portion of the drive so you'd need to do a format and/or partition prior to using this command? (or at the very least delete everything on the drive?)IF you just formatted the drive the data is still there and can be found again.
All you should need to do is open a command promt (with admin privileges) in windows and type in:
where 'X' is the drive letter of the NON-OS drive you want to securely erase.... just make sure the drive is empty before doing this as it will overwrite all free space with garbage and then delete the mega-file.

I can't remember the name of the software right now, but Hiren's Boot CD has a bootable linux part of it that will do that. Can't remember if it's called Partition Magic or something else.Any suggestions for a tool to wipe an SSD that is the only drive in the system and therefore has the OS installed on it, something that can be booted from a USB key would be great.
If the drive has TRIM and you are using a TRIM enabled OS, a quick format erases all cells.Any suggestions for a tool to wipe an SSD that is the only drive in the system and therefore has the OS installed on it, something that can be booted from a USB key would be great.
