Drive Eraser - All versionsN/A

There is an on-going issue with multiple Lenovo machines equipped with NVMe drives where the erasure fails due to failing firmware erasure commands. The root cause of this issue is a security feature enabled within Lenovo's firmware which prevents executing required erasure commands successfully. This being the case, the issue occurs in all versions of Blancco Drive Eraser and any erasure tools using the Purge Level Erasure Standard.
