wiping HPA and DCO areas


New Member
I have noticed DBAN-1.0.5 does not wipe the Host Protected Area although the HPA is detected during the system start :!:
Also drives with size reduced with DCO are not properly wiped :!:

Is this common problem or only with certain drives :?:

Are there any plans to add function that removes the protected area(s) in the future versions of DBAN :?:
First, post the log file here or mail it to me.

Second, what program are you using that says that the HPA was not wiped?
Okay, some of the drivers in DBAN do not recognize the HPA, and no explicit check is made for it. I have put this on the TODO list.
