    Hello all.

    I have a Lacie Cookey flash drive that I lost a LONG time ago. Three years I think. Well, I recently found it. You know how this is... Its like getting a present for nothing. It was very cool to have it back.

    Anyway, At the time I purchased it I was being a very cool "I know everything about Mac" kinda guy at that time and I turned half of the 16gig drive into a sparse disk image. It has lots of scanned private info on it that was worth protecting. But those times have passed and Id like to erase this sparse image. But, Im not having any luck. I cant remember the password and I did actually write it down somewhere but because I thought it was gone forever I didn't keep track of the info. How can I completely erase this space on the disk? I've tried formatting, DiskWarrior, writing 1's over the whole drive but nothing has worked.

    Any info would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

    You should be able to just throw it in the Trash and then empty?
