"Easy to wipe USB, but not easy to reformat afterwards."

January 29, 2013  |  By r0bstewart

 |  Version: MiniTool Drive Wipe 5.0

Pros

It wiped my USB drive quickly and easily. I prefer utility programs that are standalone, but it installed easily (Windows 7) and does not take much space. And it was free.

Cons

After I wiped the USB drive it was recognized but inaccessible and inoperable. That's fine if you want to scrub and discard the USB drive, but I'm giving it to someone. I scrambled and eventually found instructions on how to use Storage/Disk Management to create a new NTFS on the USB drive, and then it was accessible.

Summary

It was fine for erasing and discarding a drive. For erase and reuse, I needed to do extra work.
