    We are using the DISKPART.EXE command in a wipe script to do a format type
    thing on HDDs to write 1s or 0s to the entire drive. The problem is that
    diskpart.exe just opens up a blank black box with a flashing cursor which
    just sits there for over an hour with no notification that it's actually
    doing anything. This has caused a lot of problems for people wondering wtf
    is going on.

    Anyone know if there's a way to use this command and get a progress bar,
    percentage counter, etc so that you can actually see what's going on?

    Or maybe an alternative program that will accomplish the same thing but
    might have some sort of notifier that it's working?

    Thanks.

    You need to post it a different newsgroup to get better help, this one is
    for Media Center (XP or Vista).
