Hi
I am wiping a 2tb 3rd Gen Time Capsule before selling it - I decided to do a 35 pass erase before I realised quite how long that would require - should it really take around 9 hours per pass!?
Thanks in advance,

I remember it taking several hours to do one pass on a 200 GB internal drive (5400 RPM).

Anyway, something like this I recommend connecting to Ethernet for.
