How to change algorithm for wiping
« on: November 07, 2011, 11:45:22 AM »
Somewhere in the CSC documentation (I think) I read that you can wipe 1. using all zeros (or maybe 1s ?) or 2. by using random data.  How do you switch back and forth between these, and what is the default immediately after first installation?

Really like the speed of the default wiping in CSC but maybe I am fooling myself about how secure it is?

Thanks for your help.

Hello,

For the moment the shred method used is 'Zero fill' and it is executed for one cycle. In the next releases more options will be available.

Thank you for your support.
