Will it erase all drives?

By howard48906 ·
If I use DBAN from a disk in boot & nuke mode will it erase all drives or just the primary drive?

Will it erase partitions as well?

It will Erase ALL of your drives....

by Peconet Tietokoneet In reply to Will it erase all drives?

So take out the drive (or drives) that you do NOT want wiped and then use it.
I have used it myself for my nine drives and it does each one in one go. It deletes everything.
So, if you do not want your data wiped, it is best to remove the drives in question before you use this.

Depends on what you select to wipe

If you set it to the top of the tree it will wipe everything but if you set it to a Specific Partition it will just wipe that Partition.

Kill Disc will probably be easier for you to use here and though it doesn't do as good a job it more than suitable for most applications where wiping is required to reuse a drive.


If you mean here using Auto Nuke it wipes everything.
