I have a Link Station Duo NAS which is attached to a router, how do I securely erase the information on it? File Shredder and Kill disk require it to be attached to my computer which it isn't. I also don't have any other external HDD cases in which I could put the drives and then attach it to my computer.

Thanks in advance.

Can you open the case and take the HDD out? You could buy an e-data PCI card. – Dave Jan 1 '13 at 20:57

Another user had a similar question.

The easiest answer is to remove the drives and format them on a another computer.

I do not see a way to guarantee the data scrubbing remotely with this unit remotely.
