    Hi:

    I'm running Disk wipe 15 pro against a SSD boot drive. I wiped the boot partition and the partition background turned red in the graphical disk display. I wiped the C: partition with the default paragon algorithm. The report stated that it completed, but the C: partition does not show with a red background. Does this mean that the wipe failed? Is it perhaps a bug in the software?

    Thanks,

    Fred

    I discovered that after running the default Paragon algorithm to wipe the C: partition, the partition background did not turn red in the graphical disk display. Then I wiped the partition with a Russian algorithm which ran for several hours. After that, the partition background did turn red in the graphical disk display. Not sure of the significance of the difference.
