Fast Wipe

#1 Post by funkist » 11.01.2019, 16:28

Would it be possible to speed up the wipe file function?
Afaik with modern magnetic drives it is no longer required to write several patterns. With SSDs, multiple writes put unnecessary stress on the disk. One pass with zeroes or random numbers should be enough.
Maybe it could be solved with checkboxes for each pattern, so the paranoid can use more than just one pattern and whoever is focussed on speed just uses one.
