How to use HDDErase

HDDErase is a powerful tool to recover your Sandforce SSD's speed. Much like Sanitary Erase, which works with Indilinx SSDs only, it will completely erase your SSD and fully recover your drive's performance.

Please note: HDDErase will completely erase your drive. All data will be lost. You will have to create a backup before using this tool.


1. Download HDDErase (http://cmrr.ucsd.edu/people/Hughes/SecureErase.shtml) and copy it on a bootable USB drive

2. Shut down your system and uninstall all drives from your machine. Yes, that includes the SSD you'd like to erase.

3. Boot up your system again, enter the BIOS and change your SATA controller settings to Compatible/Legacy IDE. Also, align your boot priority to make sure you boot off the USB drive.

4. Save & Exit, restart your system and boot off your USB drive.

5. As soon as you see the DOS command prompt, reinstall the SSD you wish to erase.

6. Execute HDDErase
