I have a bat file that we use to write meaningless data to a harddisk. But I dont know what exactly it means...

Here is the command:

dtlite2 of=\\.\physicaldrive1 bs=256k limit=200m passes=1000 disable=cache pat_part1=0xffffffff pat_part2=0xffffffff pat_part3=0x0 pat_part4=0x0 dlimit=2048

platform is windows. This is run from a bat file.

  • dtlite2; isn't it daemon tools? Mar 3, 2014 at 9:59
  • I dont know, at first I thought so but I cannot find any documentation on deamon tools lite that points to any of it mean. I assume bs is block size. passes is how many passes it does but what does limit do? or disable-cache? etc...
