    bulk hdd erase


    Ive got about 100 pcs that I need to format before I donate them. They all have Windows 9x OS and i'd like to do them at least 10 at a time.

    Can anyone suggest any good tools to do this?

    yer I thought of that...

    I havent been able to find much about doing multiple hdd's at once. Ive used Nuke and DOD but need to be able to do them faster because i've got about 100. I thought about ghosting them all with a non sensitive image but would prefer a Linux option

    Damn. That's some task. Can't you just nuke them? It shouldn't take too long in comparison considering how much you nuke them. I have done a 60GB in about 20-30mins with DoD 7 passes...i believe it was because that was what I usually did when someone wanted me to nuke them unless told otherwise.
