Format after running DBAN?/Erase RAM?

Postby sd8974 » Mon Feb 16, 2009 5:19 pm


Does DBAN incorporate a re-formatting of the hard disk during/after running? Is there any more that needs doing after running DBAN to make a hard disk secure?

Also, does RAM store any information? Is it something that also needs to be erased securely? If so, how?

Thanks in advance,

From Gralfus, DBAN was for overwriting a drive (erasing it), not for formatting it. Depending on how the drive was wiped, you may have to partition it and format it after using DBAN. :|
