How can I secure Erase my Samsung SSD Besides Parted Magic?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello guys, I wanna Secure Erase my SSD but everytime I use Parted Magic it tells me that the SSD is frozen, so I press the sleep button and once computer comes back from sleep everything is on except my Monitor, I believ this has something to do with parted magic and Z170-Z97 platform as these platforms have on board GPU, I tried using the on board GPU and still no luck, so question is:

1. Do you guys know any solution on this issue with screen not coming back from sleep in Parted Magic on Z170 platform?

2. Is there any other bootable software you guys can recommend me to use for Secure Erasing my SSD?

3. How often should I secure erase? I was under the impression that I should Secure Erase my SSD everythime I wanna reinstall my OS.

Samsung Magician will securely erase. Download it and install make a bootable USB driver. Boot to it and then secure erase the SSD.
To answer your question you do not need to ever erase a SSD if you just want to reinstall the OS. I Do not know why you are having the sleep issue. To be honest the quick boot time of SSD is less than a minute. There is very little need to ever put the computer to sleep. It could be an issue with the OS. I would try a reinstall of OS don't use software to install the OS. just boot off a CD or flash drive and install your OS of choice.

I don't have sleep issue with my OS, I have issue with Parted Magic as my title and OP says, basically when I run the Secure Erase tool within Parted Pagic bootable USB, it asks me to put the computer to sleep in order to un-freeze the SSD and when computer come back up from sleep everything is on and running except monitor. There for I asked if there is another software I could use. I did use Samsung Magician USB SSD secure erase tool long ago and had issue with it so I'll give it another try.

Why would you need to securely erase before reinstalling? Anyway, there's a secure erase option within CCleaner.

Edit: Terrible suggestion on my part. Do not use CCleaner for SSDs. Use Samsung Magician instead in this instance.

It's my boot drive and Ccleaner is not an option, reason I wanna secure erase is to put the drive back to factory condition so I can maintain the maximum performance. At least I was under that impression.

No need. Don't bother. I only recommend doing a secure erase when you are having storage related issues or the drive has been in a TRIMless environment for a while and performance isn't that good. Otherwise you have no reason to.

Ok I'll be buying a new Samsung 850 Pro M.2, even on an M.2 I don't need to secure erase??? If not what is your exact suggestion when I'm installing Windows 8.1 or 10? Do I just delete all partitions then create new partitions and the format and begin install or do I just format the Windows partition and continue with install?

M.2 is just another form factor. No need to secure erase, especially on a new drive...

Just delete all partitions and quick format the drive during install.
