    Study finds the task to be very difficult; overwriting or crypto-erasure seem the best methods for sanitizing SSDs

    Until a university study emerged last week, few experts suspected that it's more difficult to erase data stored on solid-state drives (SSD) than that on hard disk drives (HDDs).

    Industry experts were taken aback by the study, but noted that there are SSDs with native encryption capabilities that can prevent data from being seen even after a drive's end of life, and that there are some SSD drive sanitation methods that are more successful than others.
