[Coco] Formatting hard drives.

I am about to get rid of two SyQuest EZ135 SCSI drives. They use removable 128MB cartridges. I want to format all sectors before I let them go, so I've written a BASIC09 program to do this.

Is there an existing utility that will do a full zero-write to all sectors on a drive to erase them?

Seems some of the old Matt Thomson (?) SCSISYS utilities did, but they don't seem to be compatible right the current drivers.
