I don't get why anyone would buy a used ssd or hdd, they can die literally at any time. Its probably also why I never sold one, as its a ticking time bomb.
ssd/nvme can just stop, hdd at least most of time gives you a sign its going.
I wouldn't sell a 128gb ssd, I would put it in draw and at least know thats 1 less small drive someone will try to cram windows onto

I get your point, but for some its cheaper, just for them to get through. There are plenty of used drives being sold on eBay

It seems the full format does the trick, and not the quick format
