Wiping disk with Bruce Schneier algorithm - stuck at 'less than 1 minute'
I want to wipe some disks with the 7-pass Bruce Schneier algorithm. Everything goes fine until the progress bar is just before the end with an estimated time left of 'less than 1 minute'.
At this point, there's no further progress; no stops, no error messages. Al I can do is wait and wait and wait... until I give up and cancel the operation.
3-pass algorithms like the US DoD works fine, though. I can of course achiene a 7-passprocess by running a 3-pass, 1-pass and another 3-pass, but that is cumbersome.
The problem occurs both in the full Windows version as well as on the USB boot stick version.
