I might be returning my surface pro due to a kickstand issue and I'd like to secure erase the SSD before I do. I loaded up Partedmagic and tried to use the secure erase function to wipe the drive and it's frozen. Apparently the SP3 doesn't support sleep so it can't un-freeze the drive. The other way to unfreeze the drive is to not plug it in until the computer is booted, that obviously isn't happening. Also, with the UEFI requirement, trying to get tools like DBAN or just about anything for that matter is a nightmare. Not that you want to run DBAN on an SSD, but is there a tool that can access the SSD's firmware to do the drives built in wipe?
