ATA Secure Erase

When this command is given, an SSD will reset all its storage cells to empty, releasing trapped electrons and restoring the drive to its original state. This operation completely wipes data from the drive.

ATA Secure Command erase is a easy-to-use data destroy command, amounting to electronic data shredding. Executing the command causes a drive to internally completely erase all user data. If this function is executed, then all user data and the management table will be destroyed and cannot be permanently retrieved. The amount of time that it takes to carry out this function is dependent on the size of the drive. For example, to carry out this function on a 512GB drive will take approximately 20 seconds.

Meanwhile, this command is carried out within disk drives, so no additional software is required. When power failure is encountered, this command will be resumed once power is returned.
