Hi

Thank you very much for the program. Successfully
nuked the old computer that I'm giving away.

It's the first time I use your program.

Two text messages draw my attention:

1. When describing commands (methods of destruction) -
F3 key - the program says that disks will be nuked
without any further confirmation.

I pressed Enter, the main program loaded and asked me
to select the harddisks to nuke.

I would suggest to incorporate the messages
corresponding to the settings of the program.

2. When the program finished, it said
"Saving LOG file... success"
"DBAN finished. Press ENTER to save the LOG file..."

Strange. What for should I save the LOG file just
after saving it?

Regards,
Andrew.

    Regarding #1:

    All disks are indeed automatically wiped if you use a method
    shortcut at the boot prompt. Read the SYSLINUX.CFG file and
    look for instances of the --autonuke switch.

    Regarding #2:

    Some people save more than one DBAN log file for auditing
    purposes.

    The prompt also gives people the opportunity to pull the
    boot media after starting DBAN and return for the log file
    after the wipe is finished.
