Ah yes, the "format data" option

If that is indeed what he was doing, then that's an issue. I guess that's not how I read it, but I'll go back and read it again with that in mind

Looks like it didn't make it to the "destructive option"

But his use of wipe throughout still throws me off.

Only way to be for sure is to test it
