    Quick format only deletes the map. the data is all still there and doesn't get removed until it is written over by later writes to the disk. Full format checks if there is any sector errors (bad sectors) , fixes them, if desired, and then finally deletes the map. The data is still there until written over by future writes to the disk.

    I have an SSD that I was using in my iMac. The power supply failed. It's been removed and I would like to erase the drive using my Windows 10 machine. Can it be done using a USB to SATA cable? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
