Secure erase/wipe - Utility/App

Postby Hard-Boiled » Sat Dec 07, 2019 7:40 pm

not sure, whether I'm using the Right thread, but i'll give it a try ;-)

I searched for a "Secure erase/Wipe Utility/app" running directly from the NAS and/or from an APP. However, there don't seem to be one available...

Anyone aware of such an Util/App ?

PS: or, any other Suggestion to do the same job ?

Thanks in Advance !

I just sent a request to Asustor support team.

Hi Asustor,

Erasing a disk takes long time, especially if it's done proper way, ensuring that data can't be restored. It's an option to use a computer for this, but it might be smarter to use a NAS for lower power consumption and it can take up to days and format a drive, so leaving your computer home is not always an option.
It should be possible to format an internal drive or external drive and it would be nice, if you simply use some Linux tool, that it can be encrypted, this would make the restore process even more difficulty.

Thanks in advance.
