It seems that with each generation of device the wipe time gets longer and longer. I can't believe that a 8700v has so much more memory than a 7730 that it takes 45 minutes to wipe ? The 7730 used to be done in less than 5.
This is not just a single device too, all our 8700v's take the same amount of time, some even longer.
Are there any tricks to speed up this process ?
Anecdotal evidence seems to indicate that if you wipe by getting the password wrong, the device comes back a usable state quicker than if you choose Wipe Handheld from the security options. We have had devices take over an hour to return with the latter method
