Hello JulioJ,

 

 

We understand you need to remove the SED in order to perform a firmware based secure erase. Could you share a screenshot of this situation?

 

Do you have an actual error message?

 

 

There is no way to remove the feature since this is done at the drive level and it basically helps to prevent unwanted intrusion and secure the drive.

Hello JulioJ,

 

 

After reviewing the case, we can only suggest to try to run secure erase using HDparm in Linux:

 

 

hdparm --user-master master --security-set-pass password /dev/sdX

 

hdparm --user-master master --security-erase password /dev/sdX

 

hdparm -Np468862128 /dev/sdX

 

 

 

Here is a http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/white-papers/ssd-server-storage-applicat... link with more information about it.

 

 

Let us know if this helps.
