anode Posted July 28, 2012 Share Posted July 28, 2012 Hi all, not sure if this fits here, but seemed best location. On Mac OSX, it offers to securly erase all free space. Now I've read that its not all *that* secure, since its a journaled files system, so there is an outside chance some data can still be recovered. (and it takes a long time depending on the # of passes) My idea for an alternitive method would just write a script that write data to a file and just fills up the drive, then deltes (and possible multiple times) I'm not overly parinoid, but I would want a 100% secure method if needed. Good, bad, or in different idea? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
