How long will it take to wipe my drive?
How much time will the software take to wipe my drive completely?
It depends on the wiping methods you're using, in Macrorit Data Wiper, we provide 5 wiping schemes, they can overwrite data for 1, 3, and 7 passes, the more passes you choose, and the longer time it will take. For home use, first 3 methods are quick and enough; for commercial use, DoD wiping methods are recommended.
Besides, wiping speed is affected by:
- Hard drive capacity;
- System performance;
- Bad sectors;
- Server life of disk;
Hence we could not be able to estimate the time taken by the software to complete wiping process.
