Dell Mini 9 32GB SDD wiping - July 22, 2009, 09:18 AM

I sold my mini and bought a MacBook Air. Now I have some accessories for the mini that I don't have any use for. The most "valuable" is my 32GB SSD that I upgraded my mini to when I bought it. I replaced that with the 64GB runcore and that's what I sold with the mini.

Does anyone have a good idea on how to wipe this SSD without an actual mini?

Or maybe someone would be nice enough to wipe it for me...I would like to just wipe it and sell it but I don't want to sell it with all my information on it.

Also, it will be going up in the FS section after it gets wiped.

you could hook it up to an external hard drive case, then connect it to your macbook air (the air's do have usb or firewire drives right?). mac os has a utility to wipe hard drives. it's in the 'utilities' folder under apps.

ps - depending on the size of the ssd, you could borrow my hard drive case. I forget what size it is, just pm me if you want me to look at it

Oh, that's a good point. I think it runs a standard SATA connection. I can just run it through my HDD case. Good call.

It's the stock 32GB Solid State Drive that comes from dell.

I don't know how much for the drive. I was thinking $60 for it.
