如果想要卸载 Tails 并用将 USB 记忆棒做他用,您必须重置 U盘。

The content of the USB stick is lost in the operation, but an attacker might still be able to tell that Tails was installed on that USB stick using data recovery techniques.

You might overwrite any hard disk on the computer.

If at some point you are not sure about which device to choose, stop proceeding.

Erase Tails from the USB stick

First, erase Tails from the USB stick:

  1. 确保您想要重置的 USB 记忆棒还未插入计算机中。

  2. Open the Start () menu.

  3. Choose Windows System ▸ Command Prompt.

  4. Execute the following command to start the Diskpart utility.

    diskpart

  5. Execute the following command to obtain information about the disks in the computer.

    For example:

      --------  ----------  -------  -------  ---  ---
      Disk 0    Online        80 GB      0 B
    
  6. Plug in the USB stick that you want to reset.

  7. Run the same command again.

    list disk

    A new disk, which corresponds to the USB stick that you plugged in, appears in the list.

    For example:

     Diskpart> list disk
    
       Disk ###  Status      Size     Free     Dyn  Gpt
       --------  ----------  -------  -------  ---  ---

       Disk 1    Online         8 GB      0 B
    

    Make sure that its size corresponds to the size of the USB stick that you want to reset. Note down its disk number.

    In this example, the disk number of the USB stick is 1. Yours might be different.
