Well, I am sorry but this is SeagateTool … I am a WD fan. But I have a seagate disk drive this time. I have looked at the documentation and what they say is insufficient, they say " Timed Erase : Erases sectors for various time limits up to 5 minutes. These options will overwrite the sectors at the beginning of the drive where the majority of the static operating system files reside."
What does it mean ‘various time limists’ what is that for? What is the purpose of timed erase? Does anybody know?
Does it mean that the program carries out erasing for a specific time and that’s all? If so, what is the difference between me aborting the earasing after 30 seconds and the auto-abort after 30 sec.?
