How to securely erase data from SSD drive?

How can you effectively erase data from SSD (Solid State Drive) drive? Wiping SSD drive arises when you no longer continue to use SSD drive or before selling it, where you don’t want your important data on SSD to be shared with anyone. People usually think that formatting or reformatting SSD drive several times will fully erase their data. But don’t believe that formatting/reformatting can erase your SSD data forever!!! Because it’s very easy to find a reliable data recovery program to get back all formatted data from your SSD drive. To safely and permanently wipe SSD drives, you need powerful drive wipe software that allows you to erase all data and make them unrecoverable at the same time. Here is disk eraser utility to assist you in wiping your whole SSD or partitions on SSD entirely, so that data is irrecoverable beyond using most advanced data recovery software.

Before giving away your SSD for someone’s access or selling it, make sure that you wipe all the contents of the drive properly, otherwise you may have to face headache issues, when a third person gains the access of your confidential information. This is because the act of erasing files really does not remove it from a storage drive (SSD). When you erase/delete a file from computer, it’s not actually gone as long as the areas of the SSD used are overwritten with new information. Till operating system reuses the space occupied by a file on SSD with another file, the deleted file can be recovered.

What happens when you delete/erase files in SSDs???

With SSDs, the erased file situation is even more complex. SSDs store data in blocks instead in sectors as with magnetic storage drives. Overwriting a block was previously used involves copying the contents of the block to the cache, wiping the block’s contents, delete the block to be overwritten from cache, writing the new data to cache and re-writing the block with new data.  As an SSD is used with files that are deleted or changed frequently, the performance can drop unless the drive or OS support a technology called TRIM that wipes out deleted data blocks as soon as the file using the blocks is deleted. TRIM is supported by Windows 7 and by some late model SSDs, but not by older Windows versions. So, disk wiping can be both a security feature and a performance improvement strategy.
