Looking for light, automated shred/partition/format utility
I always seem to be cleaning hard drives with this process: shred with DBAN, Partition, format, check for errors with live CD
this usually requires swapping disks, depending on which file system I am formatting for (Linux/Windows/OSX)
DBAN will shred all disks at once, - although it takes a while, but then for the later steps, I have to partition/format/ check for errors on each disk individually. It's all very monotonous.
I'm looking for a light utility (floppy preferred, or Live CD) that can do it all, without my intervention once I've set it going.
I'd like it to:
choice of mass (do to all disks) or selective (e.g. do to hda only) and choice of all steps, or just certain steps.
shred hard disks with control of shred's switches
format disks (choice of FAT/16/32, ext3, ZFS, HFS, NTFS, UDF, ....and others)
Check disks for errors (to screen/logfile)
I'd like to be able to set a machine going with 4 hard drives, and come back later and have them done.
So does anyone know of a utility like this?
