Thanks for the heads up.
My main question is regarding running them in parallel. Sorry, if it wasn't
Do you know what size your disks were?
We have a time constraint. Need to get off the gear ASAP! 😐
I can push it to the limit and don't even mind of the system blows 😂
It would be great if you could recollect the commands from your notes.
I am planning to do a 7 pass on flash disks and 3 pass on physical disks.
