    The future of the DBAN forum

    I'm not sure where to post this, but thought it would be better here rather than in the DBAN forum itself where it may be overlooked. I've noticed that recently people have been asking support questions for DBAN and haven't had any replies. In the past I've tried to help out where I can but I...

    DBAN Forum Support information

    From now on, if you have a question relating to DBAN, it would appear to be better to direct the support questions to http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?forum_id=208932 Since April, this forum has been dead for support - it would have been nice of the admin to have told us. I suppose...

    DBAN v1.0.7 / DBAN Beta 2007042900

    I wonder if anyone / admin can clear up a little bit of confusion here. When I use DBAN 1.0.7, in the Disks and Partitions screen I can see the following: (IDE 0,0,0,-,-) (Hard Drive info) (IDE 0,0,0-,1) Partition (IDE 0,0,0,-,2) Partition To wipe the entire disk I just choose the...

    Does additional RAM make DBAN run any faster?

    I have recently upgraded the RAM in my computer, tripling the amount of RAM I previously had. I'm going to do a disk wipe and fresh reinstall of Windows in the next month or so and was wondering whether additional RAM would make DBAN run any faster? Or is that more down to the type of...

    Running DBAN on a partition rather than an entire disk

    I can remember a post (from a while ago) where someone once asked a question about how to determine that a particular partition that showed on DBAN matched a particular partition on the disk that was to be wiped. I'm sure someone replied that it wasn't always possible to determine this and that...

    Question about "blanking" during DBAN

    when the DBAN program is running, and it is in the part of the program that "blanks" the hard drive, does it do so in a similar way to Eraser, eg by leaving a multitude of files, all sized 0kb, and with similar names (ie a sring of zeros, then a numerical sequence at the end) or does it truly...

    Can't delete bootex.log file in Free Space

    I realise that this probably isn't anything to actually do with the Eraser program, but I was wondering if anyone has had this problem (if it is a problem) and has a solution. The bootex.log file is created (at the volume root) when a chkdsk is run. The file logs the outcome and the...

    some questions about DBAN before I use it

    Hi I've been reading through the threads here about using DBAn and then reinstalling the OS afterwards but just to check that I have got everything correct can I just run through what I think may happen and check if it is what will happen! 1. Create NukeBoot disk 2. restart computer - at...
