I have wiped my 2,6 GB partition first with DBAN using DOD 7 pass mode.
It took about 20 minutes.
Then I wiped the same partition with the commercial Acronis Drive Cleanser (which is a competing product to DBAN) also using DOD 7 pass mode.
It took more than 2 hours.
As far as I have seen Drive Cleanser - started from a boot medium - is also based on a Linux Kernel (although it´s windows software and has a windows xp like user interface).

What about that?
Is DBAN less secure, because it is so fast - or is it so much better in performance?
Has everybody made similar experiences?
Thanks

Maybe the Linux kernel used in DBAN supports faster (U)DMA transfers with your hardware, while the Acronis product doesn't?

sounds like user error?
