Topic: Nwipe integration
Would it be possible to implement Nwipe as part of the Gparted LiveCD?
Right now if I need to secure erase a disk using the Gparted LiveCD I launch a Terminal window and put in
sudo shred -v -z -n 8 /dev/sdX
Thing is if I have multiple disks to erase, I must open a window for each disk and put in the same command.
Also, nwipe would make it easier for a Linux newbie than shred is.
There is a ShredOS LiveCD taking advantage of nwipe as in booting directly to it, but there are some usb keyboard detection issues with certain motherboard USB chipsets the ShredOS developer is investigating. He's actually the one who suggested that asking Gparted Live dev community to investigate and implementing Nwipe on the Gparted LiveCD.
