Q. What are Erasure Rules how do I use them?
A. Rules in XErase control what portions of the media are erased. They are specific erasure methods that target or skip certain sections of a device to retain manufacturer only data. These are helpful in situations where the OEM requires certain data on a device to make it functional in its host environment. You can access these rules by clicking the Screwdriver and Wrench Icon and selecting the rules dropdown. The factory default rule set will display. Select which one pertains to your situation and click the update arrow. The rule in play will now display at the top of the XErase GUI.
