Secure erase an ssd, sound pretty easy right, not in my case, i have 2 240gb Sandisk extreme ssd run in raid 1 at my boot drive.
Last week, i notice some thing unsually happen with my pc(gaming mouse are not very respondsive, ocasionally i got kick out of the game sever and window wasn’t update propertly) so i think i got a virus or malware in my pc.
So, it time to SE both my ssd and do a re install of W7
At first, i try the easy way(using diskpart tool) but it doesn’t work.
So itry using parted magic, witch alway work with my other ssd(samsung 840, intel 520)
When i try to SE my Sandisk estreme using the secure erase option in parted magic, my ssd were in a frozen state so i have to put my pc to sleep then wake up the pc so the ssd will become “un frozen” and i can start to do a normal SE
But my pc won’t go to sleep so i can’t SE.
Are there any other way to secure erase data on my Sandisk extreme ssd, any help is appericiated
One more thing i forgot to mention is HDDerase doe not work because HDDerase only work with 32bit window, my is window 7 64bit.
