I’m just trying to use the secure erase option on my SSDs and the dashboard application says it can’t do it and you need to make a USB drive and boot off of that. I create the drive and it can see the SSDs but when I select the secure erase option it has red text telling you it’s not going to work.
I’m guessing this is because there’s a password field. I have no clue what this password would be, to the best of my knowledge. I never created one.
It doesn’t give you any other information simply stating: You have selected to ATA secure, erase and NVMe device. This operation will not be successful.
So NVMe devices do not support secure erase?
