I don't believe there is any way to estimate how long this will take. It could be hours, could be longer. Make sure you have deleted all objects off first, so that nothing is configured.

Hello doranlum,

As Glen stated I am not seeing any way to calculate the time that it will take to zero out the drives. In most cases I have had customer that start the process and check on the system every few days until they see that it has completed.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
