  1. DBAN disk wipe on Bitlocker?


    My mother has an old laptop which is very slow running Win10 with Bitlocker encryption. I set it up for her in the past. She wants to get rid of it.

    If the drive is encrypted, do I still need to wipe the data using DBAN?

    The hard drive is an IDE drive, not SSD.

    :)

    You do not need to use dban unless you intend to pass device to anybody else. See tutorials section for step by setp guides to clean install windows 10.
