Do bear in mind that this is solid state storage, and it's not like HDD - blocks are "rotated" to prevent them getting used too much, even if the OS believes it has the "same" physical block.
It is quite possible to erase eMMC with good "overwriters" and still retrieve the original data later.

I'd suggest an encrypt, hard reset, fill it up, encrypt, hard reset cycle if you are at all worried. And as an extra precaution, change all your passwords! Laugh | :laugh:
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
