Seeking confirmation for shred /dev/sdc
Hi, I have an old flash drive that's got some files, and had some files that seem to have disappeared (it was a freebie flash drive!). So, I wanted to shred it before I tossed it. But I wanted to get some final confirmation before I shred it, that the command shred /dev/sdc would work ok. df output is:
/dev/sdc 513284 9476 503808 2% /media/disk
and /media/disk is that flash drive. Using that shred on the /dev/sdc won't somehow turn around and mess up my partitions or anything right? I just wanted to make 110% sure before I did something that could turn out to kill my system!
