If you want a USB thumb drive wiped, try asking an arts student for help


Arts – nobody left undeleted data on the drives, 44.4 per cent had run a "quick" format, and 33.3 per cent had run a full format.

I think this is far too generous to arts students. The reality is that none of these students had stored anything on the drives in the first place. 33.3% of them had never even plugged their drive into a computer before.
