    I own the A1470 with 3TB and i will sell it. I erased the internal drive, so i choose write zeros (2nd option) make sure everything is erased before selling.
    Now is blinking amber and the estimated time to complete is around 6 hours and something.

    My question is: if I close the airport utility app, the drive will continue erasing? or will just pause until I open again the airport utility app?

    Cheers! :cool:

    Edit: Sorry is Airport time capsule.

    Yes. You can safely close AirPort Utility while it is erasing.

    No problem! Just remember you cannot make changes while it is erasing.
