If you have TRIM, you DO NOT need to secure erase

Recommended Posts

You no longer have to boot to DOS and secure erase your SSD before installing Windows, just quick format the partition before installing Windows 7 ... The format under Windows 7 triggers a TRIM of all invalid data

 

When you perform a quick format with Windows 7, the TRIM function does the same thing that a secure erase application does

Sorry if this is already common knowledge. I just discovered it and thought it might help others avoid the unnecessary step of secure erasing. :sunglasse
