I've got an old SSD that I've sold and would like to secure erase it. The thread below seems to be the most in depth discussion of this and it seems that the ATA command is the only way to go. However I've got a Mini with no cd/dvd drive so I can't boot into Linux to do so. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=841182&highlight=secure+erase+ssd Is there a way for me to perform the ATA erase command via Terminal? I have a SATA/USB adapter and can connect the drive no problem. Thanks!
