Re: [vox-tech] Secure Wiping hard drives



Hi guy. Next week is Sac State finals week ,,, things are slowing down.

Question: To my knowledge my machine has not had an automatic update since your last session. Is it doing it without my knowledge (I don't mind) or is it totally turned off? If so, is this bad?

Denny

       There is also the program 'scrub' which can do a full secure
       wipe of the drive.
