Thank you! Your directions were complete and to the point. Worked as you stated. Excellent. You deserve a pat on the back, ( pat, pat).thumb.gif

just wanted to point out this thread to any Crucial SSD owners (possibly others) . seems installing Win8, or enabling eDrive will disable Secure Erase on the drive. the only way to enable secure erase on the drive again is to use a "PSID reset utility" which Crucial has yet to release. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

also a big thanks Sean for the Tut, and the link to the free version of Partition Magic.

I've got a Crucial M4 and I installed Win 8 on it when it first came out. I'm pretty sure I secure erased it with Parted Magic before installing Win 8 on it. I've since installed Windows 8.1 on it, but not sure if I tried secure erasing it before doing so. Does this mean that I can't secure erase it again? If so, that's going to be a real hassle as I normally sell old gear when upgrading to new stuff.

from what i read you might not be able to. i would think you could could still write 0's to it.
maybe if enough people contact Crucial maybe we can get the PSID reset utility.
that or they get fed up with all the RMA work because of it. rolleyes.gif

Is it an issue with all Crucial SSDs or just their newer models?

Sean posted a link to a Crucial utility below. Have you tried it yet?

Thanks, Sean. The page doesn't mention the M4 in the list of drives for the utility "The Crucial Storage Executive is compatible with Microsoft® Windows® 7 or newer, and works with the Crucial M500, M550, MX100, MX200, and BX100 SSDs". You think the utility would work with the M4, or have they just not listed it as it's an older drive? I didn't even know they had a utility. You think this PSID issue would affect all Crucial SSDs?
