I have used a lot of thumb drives in an environment with high risk of malware, and I never put one back into the laptop I rely on. So now I have all these exposed thumb drives. Is there a reasonable way to wipe them clean (no need to preserve any data) to make them safe to use?
Could I rely on Symantec Endpoint Protection to make it safe for me to insert them and delete them? Or is there some (relatively easy) other safe way? Or is it much safer to just toss them?
I bought them to be disposable, but there are so many I'd rather clean them if it is safe.
