Using a low voltage through two pins (since i know what mem chips you using i cannot tell you). But a .02V though the mem chips would be enough to wipe them.

Personally i wouldn't worrie about id theft from a good manufacture but if you are going to the extremes of wiping it then your going to invtest so time of your own to do it.. I know if it was me id jujst send back but if it was importamnt data then id wipe the drive my self.

Do u know SSd's have a Fuse on them. It could be just a blown fuse ! All you could do is bypass the fuse wipe the data. send it back (with out the by pass) get it fixed and your sorted.

Crushing it would be the last extreme resort imo. but still a good one if you so severely stuck. But if you know any thing about dds then you'll know crushing still leaves data on the chips and all it would take is some one sticking them in a new ssd and you'd get back the data.

Don't wholey understand why it has to goto china under a waranty thing, and they can't just replace the thing locally.

In anycase, if they want, they can ofc just stick a new controller over it and load everything off - if it is infact the case the controller is bust. Trust them ? Probably not tbh. I wouldn't trust any1, even a reputable firm - they would ofc on the face of it be legit, but it only takes 1 employee, without the company's knowledge to rip it.

A data recover firm would get it up and running I'm sure - that is going to cost u a fortune. Even for 32g.

Got any large sources of EMF ?
