More to the point - do you want to use it - I set it going on a (nearly new) crucial 128GB drive 2 hours ago and its only done 5.28% - that makes about 40 hours!!! to complete - CAN I STOP IT?

Help !

Up to 6.25%.

Just joined Crucial forum and posted there - apparently it's because I have 1 x 1TB drives in RAID1 on the intel controller.

Ive got a couple of vertex drives and when they were using firmware 1.1 wiper would be done in around 1 min. Now its at firmware 1.4 they are super slow like yours, about 5% after an hour or whatever. Not really ideal at all! They should use garbage collection though, which I think still works in RAID 0. Just log off for half an hour or so, so that the drives are inactive and it does its work and improves their performance :)
