Possible to check status of wipe after GUI logout?

  • After I initiated a secure wipe on a new disk, the GUI provided a status window that showed completion percentage. After a GUI timeout (logout), I can't seem to find the wipe status anywhere. The only indicator is the high CPU usage. Where can I find the ongoing wipe completion percentage?

    As a side note, the first time I tried to secure wipe I thought the process had finished. The GUI let me work with the disk but spit out a number of I/O errors. I almost interpreted this as a failed disk.
