Wipe an SSD

Recommended Posts

Hi, My C drive is a Crucial CT256mx100SSD1

I have had daily reboots on my system. Re-installed win10 off a stick, but the one I chose was to keep everything.

Can I format and SSD to wipe it clean? ATMO it is 237.91 with 136.78 free.

If you wipe the drive you lose all the data just to be clear. But yes you can wipe it without issue. I have MX100 500 drive that I have wiped a few times now.

Ok my knowledgable friend, it is the C Drive.

Kill windows

I have a stick with win 10 on it.

Should be no trouble, I guess?

I did an install over without losing anything. Problem reboot rared it's ugly head again.

Can I use the USB stick again? It is USB3 but can I load ASM104xUSB3 onto drive D or drive E ?

I'd figure out what it causing the reboots.

Look in the Event viewer and see whats going on under the memory and hard drive for errors.

 

I either use Parted Magics way of wiping an SSD with Secure Erase or Using HD Erase.

 

here are the Crucial guidelines for doing so.

Thanks dr_bowtie, The common critical event is Event ID 41, Source Kernel-Power, Log System, Task Category 63.

This event is widespread since the 1903 version of win10. I updated to 1909 in hope. Didn't help.

Many users have done things that fixed it, and I tried them all. Nothing helped me and also hasn't helped many others.

Here is a small amount of a huge list.

I see Epson tried to install drivers.

I found some updater folders, but seems they have no action recently.

Epson might be only one of the problems though.

Waiting on your feed back.

honestly I'd unhook the printer and uninstall all printer drivers and software and delete any remaining folders and see if that fixes the error issue and reboot issue. Check the other errors and see if you cannot fix those.

 

I do know that windows 10 has change how the USB handles the ports and that has caused great issues especially with the mouse and its software. once you remove the printer software you might try updating the USB drivers and retry if that fixed the issue.

 

The issues with windows 10 is the main reason I went Linux after win7 went EOL.... I cant deal with the issues for daily stuff.
