so I need to Sanitize an SSD and downloaded the glorious SSD Dashboard.
After trying to sanitize the disc it told me that it can’t delete the device it’s running from and I should use the USB option below.
Unfortunately there was no SSD option just a blank field.
So I got myself an USB Stick and plugged it in. Still no USB option.
So I got a new machine and installed Windows 10 on it, plugged the SSD which needs to be sanitized in as a second device and installed the SSD Dashboard.
Then it told me: “Sanitize is blocked by Windows. To erase this drive, use the below option to create a bottable USB drive,”
Again no USB option. After googling the problem it says I should check the security status of the SSD in the top area of the Dashboard which says: “Security: none”
So my question: Is there any possibility to sanitize the disk? Dashboard seemed to be very helpful…
