How long does the wipe process take?

The time it takes to wipe a drive is limited by the speed of the hardware being wiped, not the software. Each sector on the drive must be overwritten to ensure that the data has been erased. Older drives will take much longer to wipe than newer drives. Larger drives will take longer to wipe than smaller drives.
