Help with slowdown

i am looking at using DBAN to wipe multiple hard drives simultaneously.

Under controlled circustances it ran perfectly every time. I am trying to run it now, however, using 6 hard drives that we are donating, and it is slowing down drastically.

I am running 2 batches of 6, and the first batch slowed down temporarily, then found a failed drive and resumed wiping at normal speed.

The second batch, however, has been slowing down progressively and has, as of now, not failed a drive.

My question is:

a. is there a way, other than running the program in "verbose" mode, to tell which drive, specifically, is causing the slowdown, and

b. for any future releases, will there be a way to possibly see more information on individual drives (like if one is causing a slowdown or about to fail)


Thank you

No, you must save and check the log. The most common problem is a DMA fault.

SMART reporting is planned.

Product enhancements happen faster when the work is sponsored.
