Please make sure you backup all important data before using this function
because this function will delete the data in the HDD
4.3 DoD Erase
This is to comply with the USA Department of Defense (DoD 5220)
standard to fully erase the HDD. It uses the bit-for-bit method to rewrite
the HDD and guarantee all data erased by three-time erasing process.
Please make sure you backup all important data before using this function
because this function will delete the data in the HDD.
Steps of Erase:
This function will start executing DoD Erase after pressing <OK>.

4.4 DoD EraseComp
As well as DoD erase, this function will also execute compare function to
make sure the random bit was correctly written. This function erases each
sector of the HDD three times: the first time with zeros (0x00), second
time with 0xFF and the third time with random characters, performs a bit
by bit check to see if data is completely erased. It will damage the data in
HDD, please make sure you backup all important data before using this
function.
DOD Erase Method
The erasing time of DoD Erase mode is three times longer than Full Erase mode.

Function Introduction
4.5 Secure Erase
The international authorized high standard Secure Erase function. It
overwrites every single track on the hard drive with "00". Even PA/DCO or
other data area which are not able to load, can be erased all together.
Please Note:
•Please do not disrupt during Secure Erase, otherwise it would cause irretrievable error on HDD,
which turns the HDD unusable.
