Why does it take 4 days to perform a US Standard DOD Wipe of a 450GB Partition? Am I doing something wrong? This is an ordinary 450GB UN-partitioned space.

Hello Johnny,

thank you for your posting.

Please note that Acronis Drive Cleanser 6.0 is an old product which was released in 2004 and first of all you need to check if your operating system is supported.

If your OS supported, you may want to check if starting the product from bootable media helps.

Thank you.

I just purchased the software last week and am using the latest build. It's even slower when I boot from DVD. When I was attempting to perform a DOD Wipe via the OS I was using Windows 7. Chatting with tech support only resulted in them telling me to use the Custom Wipe Script utility which did not result in any performance improvement (which I suspected they knew it would not). Customer support recommended I use the lates build which I downloaded; only to find out that I was using the latest build. If there is a later version of this product (6.0 build 6.0.691) and Acronis sold me a old product I hope the direct me to a later product since I just purchased this product last week.
