Using Eraser for an encrypted portable hard drive


New Member
Hi, I have encrypted portable hard drive using Veracrypt. I would now like to erase its contents from the drive. I have already backed up my drive so happy to lose whatever is on the drive now.

Should I do a full format of the external drive and then run Eraser after to delete files/folders or can I go straight to Eraser to erase the encrypted files on the drive? Thanks in advance.
