any hdd wiping software faster than DBAN?

#1nehukogPosted 10/22/2013 8:08:20 AM
I used DBAN last month and on the full wipe option it took just under 12 hours!!! Is there a faster software to use if I just wanna wipe my PC and reinstall windows?

You're using a tac nuke to kill a flea. If all you're doing is reinstalling Windows just delete the partition during the normal Windows install process and and remake it. DBAN is for secure erasing for disposal

When it asks you where to install it there's also an option to delete the partitions and make more.
