    Command:

    wipefs

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           wipefs [-ahnp] [-o offset] device
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           wipefs  allows  to  erase filesystem or raid signatures (magic strings)
           from the device to make the filesystem invisible for libblkid.   wipefs
           does  not erase the whole filesystem or any other data from the device.
           When used without options -a or -o, it lists  all  visible  filesystems
           and offsets of their signatures.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -a, --all
                  Erase all available signatures.
    
           -h, --help
                  Print help and exit.
    
           -n, --no-act
                  Causes everything to be done except for the write() call.
    
           -o, --offset offset
                  Specifies  location  (in bytes) of the signature which should be
                  erased from the device. The offset number  may  include  a  "0x"
                  prefix,  and  then the number will be read as a hex value. It is
                  possible to specify multiple -o options.
    
           -p, --parsable
                  Print out in parsable instead of printable  format.  Encode  all
                  potentially  unsafe  characters of a string to the corresponding
                  hex value prefixed by '\x'.
