I'm using shred on some 2Tb USB disk drive that I plan to give
So far it has taken 8 hours to shred 50% of the drive, which implies
that it will take about 16 hours to shred the whole drive. I have
another 2 drives to go.
Is there a quicker way to protect my data when I give the drives away,
other than smashing the drives to bits?
I notice that no one even mentioned DBAN. Is it just not fast, or
there some other consideration?
