EMC Wipe Disk Command —

If you don’t need to save anything then you probably don’t need DoD compliancy because a completion certificate is required to meet that governance plus the method of multiple pass overwrites etc…

If you don’t need compliance and you don’t need a certificate then you should just issue a command;

filesys destroy and-zero (make sure it’s the correct DDR )

The and-zero will write zero’s and will take several hours to complete. It is not supported on gateway appliances.

Without the “and-zero” it will just ‘mark’ the data as deleted and finish very quickly.

I hope that helps, Regards Jonathan
