Please Wait While Drives are Prepared for Wiping

If the software freezes at 'Please wait while drives are prepared for wiping', you will want to reboot the software and disable the Secure Erase on the drive selection/overwrite patterns option screen.
Alternatively, you can type the following at the command prompt: wipedrive --dont-use-secure-erase
To get to the command prompt, you will want to type exit anywhere in the software and select yes.
