Okay I was running DOD and it stated I had 2 days 16 hours to delete everything. I had around gigs of back up material to delete. It's been doing that all day. Now all of a sudden it's all deleted? I thought it was going to take 2 days! I got this completed message when I plugged in my new firewire peripheral. You don't think the plug in did anything do you? lol There was nothing on the hard drive. So I initialized it again like it asked and there was nothing on it. I am doing a DOD erase again just to make sure. How can I make sure this complete erase worked correctly? Whey did it all of a sudden complete the delete when it states it would take 2 days?
