I have a Samsung SSD 850 EVO M.2 that I've been trying to do a secure erase with Samsung's utility "Samsung Magician", but I keep getting an error that the SSD is frozen and I have to disconnect the power for a few seconds to reset it before using the utility again. The problem is that the M.2 SSD is inserted directly into the motherboard on the back side. I cannot reach it without removing the motherboard. These reset instructions also state that I shouldn't turn off the power while I remove the M.2 card. It's impossible.
I done a secure erase with the Samsung Magician on a Samsung SSD 850 Pro 1 Tb hard drive that is not an M.2, because it is a regular SSD that connects with the interior computer wires and I can disconnect the power cable like any other hard drive. The M.2 SSD is not like that.
How can I do a secure erase on this M.2 card?
