See the original discussion here.

Look for f3 in the System menu or in a submenu.

F3 can also be used as a non-destructive "bleaching" tool for flash drives because it writes random data over all the empty space on the drive.

Hi rcrsn51 (et al),

Thank you very much for your pet which works well, but I hope I do not seem churlish if I comment that it might be ideal to add an option to be able to set the size of the write and read speed test to say, 500 MB (or some sensible figure) as well as keeping the current Remaining Space Health Check which also reports speeds (though taking a long time if the drive/partition is non-usb3 with lots of unused space).

My regards

EDIT:

The suggestion in your post immediately below also works well. Thank you again

This applet is just a GUI front-end for f3. What I think you are asking for is not an option in f3.

If you want to write a small amount of data, press Ctrl-C to kill the writing step and read it back.

Thanks for the pet and GUI rcrsn51.

Edit: Could you please give me links to know how to make simple GUI like this.
