Default Re: Wipe drive on Snap 4500

Yes, you CAN save the GOS -AND- do a secure wipe of the drives. It is pretty simple.

Sorry Jennifer, but I am sick to death of lurkers not ever joining in. Maybe one of the 50 or so lurkers who have already read this message thread will come forward and tell you how to do it. But until they start joining in, I AM DONE!

All I will say is, YES, you can in fact save your GOS -AND- do a secure wipe of your drives that would meet your company policies and the legal requirements, and it is pretty simple. Requiring less than your original proposed method, which will NOT meet the requirements you need.

Good luck... The 4500 is worth much much less if the GOS has been wiped (next to nothing)
