[QUOTE=Kerry56;2731310]Just a quick question. Won’t Dban annihilate everything on the hard drive? Including the operating system and recovery partition?
The rental agency might not be too pleased.[/QUOTE]
This is where some input from the OP would help.
A recovery partition implies that this rental came with an OS installed.
If that is the case then even wiping the OS partition would remove the OS.
I think that could be done with a “partition manager” software .
Then use the recovery partition to “restore” this rental to its’ “out of the box” condition.
I have the paid version of one from this company:
The free version should be able to “Delete” a partition .
The “Delete” process also overwrites.
I haven’t use this feature but I think you create the " Recovery Media Builder " disc . Then boot into it .
Then “Delete Partition”. There is a wizard for this.
