    Disk utility / wipe

    seems that disk utility doesn't really work in 12.10 Beta x. I has no option to unmount partitions, and also if you try to wipe something that is not mounted you get errors.

    Have you created a bug report? If so, what's the bug number.

    Re: Disk utility / wipe

    Say, anybody fully tested Disk Utility lately? Seems it has much added to it and if all of the functions worked would be a big improvement over what we had a year ago.

    I don't have a spare drive to test it upon.

    I still miss the remote disk checking function, and wish gnome would bring it back. I created a bug report about it during the last release cycle, and of course, it's an upstream bug, so all we can do is wait hopefully.

    Not really sure how to do that. Can you confirm the same behaviour on your end?
