Are you aware of FOSS 'wipe'?
Yes, thanks Ken. I watched wipe go through clearing an SSH drive when
setting up a quick test of Kali Linux on a new laptop. It was slow, but
it worked -- when it finished, Kali had trouble allocating /itself/
enough root file system space, so I had to manually partition and try again.
Anyway, wipe is best run early. I'll keep wipe in mind and the other
tools too if the /dev/zero write gives more grief.
It's still a bit too early to tell, but the /dev/zero writing is okay so
far, but a little less than an hour in as I type .... for the first
Cheers and Thanks
It would be better to write /dev/random or /dev/urandom than
/dev/zero... if you want to stay with whatever it is you're using.
