The time it takes for SecuWipe to complete a wipe does not depend on what type of data exists on the device or memory card. For example, an empty memory card will wipe at the same speed as a card completely full of data. A pass of writing random characters will take more time as each character must be individually generated.
The following table provides estimated wiping times depending on the algorithm chosen:
Platform: Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional
Memory card: MicroSD Kingston 2GB
|File/folder size||Zeroing-out – 1 pass||U.S. DoD 5220.22-M (C)- 1 pas||U.S. DoD 5220.22-M (E) – 3 passes||U.S. DoD 5220.22-M (ECE) – 7 passes||Bruce Schneier’s algorithm – 7 passes||Peter Gutmann’s algorithm – 35 passes|
SecuWipe is designed to wipe information from devices running on Windows CE/embedded platforms, as well as legacy Windows Mobile platforms, even the most early versions of Windows Mobile/Pocket PC.
