Summer Project: Implementation of a home server, and as such I decided to wipe my harddrives (2x Western Digital 640gb Caviar Black)
The first program I used was SecureErase from CMRR everything was going well until I followed up with a second wipe with DBAN (autonuke: DoD, 3 passes), and for some reason DBAN listed one of my drives as 127gb. I initially thought it was ditzing out and was a simple display error but when the wipe was done, I formatted the drives and still… one of them was still displaying only 127gb out of the original 597gb.
I’ve tried to use Window’s Disk Management and PartedMagic to find the unallocated space but there is non-detected; like as if 470 gigs just packed up and left. The other WD 640gb drive is fine.
Any help from you guys is GREATLY appreciated.
