post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'd like to completely erase everything from an Intel 80GB SSD Drive, lncluding windows, and then reinstalling windows and starting all over again, I tried it but the drive is still at like 50GB used and I dont know where all that is coming from!

Never use these programs with a SSD, they don't work and are not good for the life of the drive. Use Parted Magic
