But with respect, I think you're overestimating the "wear and tear" that a full DBAN erase would impart on an SSD. In its simplest form - a single pass "quick" wipe with no verify - DBAN will merely write each sector once. IMHO that's hardly a big deal for a device that has a life expectancy of eleventy bajillion writes (or thereabouts ), and is probably no more write activity than the drive would get in a few hours of normal heavy use (or even from a couple more failed installs!)
Thinking of trying Dropbox? Use this referal link and we'll both get an extra 250MB of storage.
