Low Level Format

I tried to use Dban with a Maxtor SATA drive with no success. Dban could not see the drive. As an alternative I used Maxtor's Powermax software to do a low level format. The info says it overwrites the drive with 0's. Took 15hrs to write a 80gb drive.

I assume that a low level format provides basic data security?

Are there any plans to provide SATA compatibility for Dban?

Thanks

I suggest you copy your message into the Dariks Boot & Nuke category of this forum or post your message to the DBAN site. You will get a good answer there :)

Thank you.

Very basic security. not to be trusted by any means.
