    Resolved [RESOLVED] Wiping HD

    I'm wiping a spare HD, not the one I'm on. It's a long time since I last did this, and the brain cells aren't what they once were. Working with hardware brings some anxiety with it.

    I used clean all.

    I didn't get the last line saying it succeeded, but when I check my Disk Management, the 74 GB HD is indeed listed as unallocated. Can I move on now?

    At this point, you'd need to create a partition before you can write data to the drive.

    You could just use Disk Management to create the partition, but you could use Easeus.
