Video Tutorial Answer

Purging Drives at Full Speed with STB Suite (NEW)

This video will demonstrate purging many drives, each drive running at its maximum full speed, using the STB Suite.

We will show the incredible ROI possible by using or switching to the STB Suite.

Defining a STB Suite test to purge drives is a quick and easy task.

Every type of Approved Purge methods are supported with simple menu choices.

In the video we will define a simple DoD Purge, and create a customized certificate for each drive.

In the video we’ve got about 30 drives attached to our simple test system – we’ll purge them all at once.

Each drive running at its Full, Max Speed!!!

We can see the progress and purge speed as we go.

Drive 1 Speed = 253 MB/s
Drive 2 Speed = 100 MB/s
Drive 3 Speed = 96 MB/s

Each drive runs at its MAXIMUM speed…
No matter how many drives!

As usual detailed logs are recorded…
