U300s - Secure erase deleted data for a SSD drive in a Lenovo U300s

I have read that the normal drive erase is not a good idea for SSD's. I have also read that most SSD manufacturers should have a utility that will allow you to force it to flush deleted data. Does anyone know if this is available thru Lenovo. The SSD controller is a Jmicron but I did not see any utilities on their website.

Re: U300s - Secure erase deleted data for a SSD drive in a Lenovo U300s

Hi PaulKuefler , 


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Secure Erase utility directly from the SSD manufacturer are the ideal tools to use. 

Thou some older Jmicron don't have support TRIM features it would be best to call in Jmicron for a specific ones that they would recommend. 


As couple of tools , softwares and discussions on how it would be best to securely delete SSD's , lenovo would have a drive erase utility specific for thinkline products , cannot guarantee functionality with idealine .
