Erase entire disk will erase all drives?
Will the erase entire disk option wipe data from both hard drives?
I have 2 drives in my computer, they are C Drive and D Drive in Window Explorer, and will the Erase entire disk option in ByebyeData Eraser wipe data from both of the hard drives?
Please open Windows Disk management and check what the disk map like, if you’re using Windows 10, you can right-click on the Start menu and choose Disk Management to run, if it’s Windows 7, you can press the Windows button and type disk management.
If the two drives are in distinct disks, like the following screenshot, the Erase entire disk option won’t affect another drive if you erase the other one; besides, you have to choose which disk to erase before you proceed to the Erase Now button. In this situation, the Erase entire disk option and the Erase entire drive function work like the same.
But if the two drives are on the same disk, like the below screenshot, ‘Erase entire disk’ option then will erase them all and you’re erasing everything on the disk, including the operating system, both drives will be erased. Under this situation, you can click the Erase entire drive option instead and choose the target drive to erase.
Tips: When you want to erase the Disk 0 or the C Drive, you can erase it from bootable ByebyeData Eraser CD or USB.
