I'm upgrading/cleaning out my basement and I want to sell a bunch of SSDs (SATA and NVME) ranging from 128GB to 2TB. When it comes to selling traditional hard drives I would always just do a complete format (0-write) prior to selling them to stop my private data from falling into the wrong hands. How do I do that with SSDs? Do I really need a special "secure wipe" utility from manufacturer to completely wipe private data? Or is doing complete format (0-write) enough for SSD?
