My System Specs

Default Secure erase ssd

I am trying to erase my Intel 520 ssd so I can sell it. I have it installed in my Stormtrooper x-dock but I keep having to reboot for the computer to see it. When I try the Intel toolbox it says I have partitions so it will not erase it. I went into disk management and made it into one volume and now it says I have to power cycle the disk because it is locked. When I do this I cannot see the disk and need to reboot again. Is there an easier way to do this?
