Windows 7: Can "diskpart clean all" be performed after a "diskpart clean" ?

17 Aug 2012   #11

Windows 7 64 bit.

Out of curiosity, will this work?

list disk
select disk 3
create volume simple (creates volume on the whole of the selected disk)
list vol
select vol <new volume>
assign letter=L
format L: /FS:NTFS (the good old way of full formatting)

The clean and the clean all will do every sector of the entire HDD it's pointed at, it will not do single partitions, all data on the HDD will be permenetlly over-written; have a look through these tutorials linked below for some ideas.
