How do I erase Crucial m4 SSD?

  1. I am building a computer and want to use a 1 yr old M4 from Crucial. It is not in any computer at this time. I would like to just hook it up to one of my other computer and just erase it if that is needed. I have never done this before and was wondering what is the best way to do it? Is there a tool to use? Thanks

    The easiest method will be to format it when you install the new operating system on the computer you're currently building.

    It isn't necessary to erase it using another computer prior to installing it in the new computer.
