    How to secure erase a single (1) SSD?


      I understand that Intel's "Toolbox" has a secure erase function; however, I only have 1 SSD. I assume the SSD needs to be separat from the operating system? Will the toolbox software work if run on a HDD drive...


      I'm running Intel's 120GB 330 series SSD on Windows 7 Pro. Since TRIM runs supportable by default on Windows 7, I'm thinking maybe a simple-format re-installation during Windows 7 setup should be fine - performance would be good.


      But I don't know, I would like a "like new out of the box" setup for my new computer build this weekend.
