Intel SSD toolbox has a Secure Erase function embedded in it. It will only work on Intel SSDs but you obviously qualify.
A belated thank you, PKincy. Much appreciate the "common-sense" response.
Yes sir I do have the up-to-date SSD Toolbox and assume that to make it work I must run the Toolbox:
1) from a traditional HDD with the SSD connected but not set as a boot drive.
2) Would that be superior to having the SSD connected via USB?
I know this fully qualifies as a dumb-as-heck question but when I pull both X25M 80 GB's out to set up in a RAID configuration and am simultaneously setting up the new (due to arrive on 8/16/11) 510 120 GB SSD, I will be blind to the world - at least via the net.
Short of beating a drum or sending up smoke signals, I will be cut off from the world as I know it.
Thanks again for all,

Frankly, I use the Diskpart "Clean ALL" command so have not run Secure Erase from the Toolbox, but do notice it is there.
I would expect you could break your RAID down and run it from one of them, both on the drive with Toolbox installed and on the other 80GB. However I will admit I don't know the first thing about RAID arrays.
