    Default How best to refresh 256GB SSD?

    I have been using a Runcore 256GB Pro IV SSD in this Apple Macbook Pro for the past summer running Mac OS X 10.5. I am about to upgrade to Mac OS X 10.6.

    I have not found any recommendations on the web, so I'm posting here.

    How should I best refresh my SSD? I was going to wipe and install Mac OS X 10.6 fresh. What's the best software to use to erase?

    Thanks!

    I think format under DOS will do the job, if he can attach that SSD to a WIN OS computer.

    I found a few related links on the web for Macs.

    In the end, I cloned my mac to an external hard drive and used Disc Utility to reformat and then used the 'Erase free space' to write zeros across the board.

    I wanted to get running quickly, so I only ran the zeroing step once (which took over 4 hours).

    One posting on the web showed that it sometimes took as many as 3 repeat runs to get the SSD back to tip-top shape.

    So far, so good.
