    Hey everyone,

    I'm sure that users on this forum with my questions on how idiots were trying to stop. I'll stop posting my question if someone could answer mybquestion, or even copy/paste the answer from the manual to here. I'll stop posting. I would just a correct honest answer. Who cares what the other forums said. I'm not trying to be rude.

    What's the max number that the DBAN Gutmann can support? I do know that are 35 passes for 1 round of the Gutmann method. I'm talking about Peter Gutmann.

    I'm sorry. I left out a word. My bad. I meant to ask "what's the number of rounds? For example, running Gutmann at round 2 will do 70 passes.

    I was more thinking like it can do 35 rounds, or 70 rounds.

    Why do you need this unnecessary overkill?
