Hi All,

Am looking to sell my PC and get a laptop. Before that, i need to wipe out all data from the 320GB hard disk. After some research, DBAN seems to be a popular choice but further research show it take about 3 hours for the whole process. Anyone know of a better software that can does it within an hour?

Thanks.

✔ Best Answer
The speed of DBAN is determined primarily by the performance of the drive. All such programs will require about the same time.

If you're just looking for a quick wipe (say, single pass, all zero wipe) DBAN can do it. Just be aware that quick wipes can be "recovered" from. It'd defeat someone popping the drive in and doing a curiosity glance for data, but that's about it.

If you have military secrets that you're afraid might fall into the wrong hands, take the hard drive out & smash it.
