Error Handling section has the advanced settings to configure error handling while erasing or cloning the data.

Error handling attributes

KillDisk allows to select one of ways to handle Read/Write Errors:

Abort entire group processing
If erase Batch is in progress and one of the disks has errors, the erase process for ALL the disks in the Batch will be terminated.
Abort only failed disk from group processing
This is the default setting. Failed disks return an error and terminate the erase process. Other disks in the Batch will continue current operation.
Ignore error for group processing
Ignores the read/write error and continues erasing whatever is possible on the disk. None active or forth going operations will be terminated.
Terminate process after number of errors
Sets the error threshold to a certain amount before the disk operation is terminated and deemed unsuccessful.
Number of read/write attempts
Sets the number of attempts KillDisk makes to perform an operation when an error is encountered before it stops execution.
Use disk lock
Locks disks from being used by any other applications while operation is in progress.
Ignore disk lock errors
Errors encountered with KillDisk not being able to access locked disks will be ignored.
Ignore read/write errors
Toggle whether read errors or write errors will be just ignored.
