    I thought it just reset the internal encryption key so any data is worthless?

    the best way is to enable file encryption for the drive - this forces every cell to be flipped regardless if it has data on it. and then perform a sanitize or secure erase. Guaranteed surefire way to properly wipe even a cheap ssd clean.

    nvme ssds are a bit more tricky though
