How Secure Is Normal?

Postby Mugwhamp » Thu Jun 24, 2010 8:41 pm

I note that the disk scrub options range from Normal to Ultra. How secure is "Normal"? What degree of security does it offer? Thanks.

Normal generates a random pattern, and overwrites the free space or files with this random pattern one time.
