"Wipe Free Space" disabled OCZ P88 R2 512GB PCI-E SSD


Recommended Posts

OCZ P88 R2 512GB PCI-E is a bootable 8-way raid 0 SSD card in a PCI-E slot.

 

I used it with great results as my C drive in Win 7 x64, until I ran a wipe free space with CCleaner.

 

Now card hangs during bios at its initialization and cannot be accessed in bios.

 

Any ideas for why CCleaner would disable the RAID card?

 

I have same question to OCZ as an information request.

You shouldn't use normal wiping methods (meant to HDD) on a SSD, not with CCleaner or any other program unless they have the correct "wiping" methods for SSD. CCleaner's wiping (also "Wipe Free Space") is meant to be used on HDD's.

Have you tried it on another slot or different PC?

I saw Nodles last link but not the first link

I replied with a supplement

I may have been Ninja'd by an Nodles edit - or perhaps not.

 

So I chose to remove my post and cannot find a remove button. I am sure I saw one last week.

 

So instead I edit to purge all redundant comment and the crazy forum software instructs me

YOU MUST ENTER A POST

 

The forum software told me to do this

End of explanation for this redundant post.

End of Whinge :rolleyes:
