What is the fastest disk wiping utility on the UBCD. It needs to perform a secure wipe, covering most if not all sectors on the drive. It does not need to be DOD standard but the more secure the better. Speed however is the key. Right now I'm running DBAN DOD short test, its been running on 2 drives for about an hour and is not even half done. I have a very large stack of drives to sort through.

Thanks

Tim

You best run the utility from your hard drive manufacturer.
Those tools can erase all data (that other tools can't access, like remapped sectors) and they are much faster than the normal wiping programs.

See my post (post #13) at: http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?s=3a0b531c7884bfce2f8ed882286a8fcc&showtopic=8935&st=10

Read the PDF file to which I link in that post. It mentions times needed to wipe a disk for different modes.
