Default Re: seagate 80gigs failing..

yeah....
i'm talking about the time to wipe out a haed drive [no reformat..reformat comes after]..
..this failing unit i have takes 3 hours and a half for 1 sibgle pass using killdisk or wipedrive....

-in other forums..i read that a 320 gig -1 single pass- takes 1 hour..

-my question is -- why the difference...
-is it because my hd started to fail ?

You're trying to wipe out unused programs in your current HDD correct? Your HDD takes about 3-1/2 hours just for 1 single pass of KillDisk or WipeDrive. Other people with a 320GB HDD, takes only about an hour to finish either 1 of those 2 programs. The problem could be that your HDD's life span is about to end. Do you get any BSODs?

ok my cd reading speed is 20x....it's only a reader....
my dvd burner can read a cd at 48x..
..this is what you mean right...
--what reading speed[cd] you have on your Emprex Optical Drive
