new regulations in effect like HIPAA and
GLB-Act, keeping company, employee and
customer information private is mandatory.
Our degaussers will help you meet these
new physical safeguard regulations by completely
demagnetizing all data from hard drives
important to note that not all degaussers
will erase hard drives. The field
strength and the orientation of the degaussing
field need to be able to penetrate the aluminum
housing of the hard drive and be strong
enough to reverse the polarity of the high
coercivity magnetic particles on the disk
the degausser models listed below have been
designed to erase hard drives, their strong
degaussing fields will also erase today's
high-coercivity tape such as DLT, SDLT,
3480's, AIT and more.
gives you in-house control of all sensitive
and private information. Computers
have been designed to be resilient.
They allow information to be recovered if
accidentally deleted or even if the hard
drive has been reformatted. Even after
deleting or reformatting the hard drive,
magnetic patterns of existing data still
exists on the disk platters. Degaussing
demagnetizes the entire hard drive including
the disk platters - leaving no magnetic
patterns on the hard drive.
degaussed, the hard drive will be unusable
and will not be recognized by the computer.
In fact, the erasure is so deep that the
factory written servo tracks on the disk
platters are also demagnetized leaving no
reference points for the read heads to key
Non-working hard drives contain all of the
original data and can be easily recovered.
Degaussing provides the quickest (under
30 seconds) and most complete erasure of
all hard drives.
Frequently Asked Questions
should I degauss my media?
should be degaussed before media re-use
and media disposal. With all of the
un-erase utilities available, you shouldn't
risk your data getting into the wrong hands.
Therefore, it should be part of your computer
policy to degauss all hard drives before
returning the hard drives for warranty repair,
before donating to charity, before transferring
your computer to another department or before
disposal of the computer.
What about hard drives that don't work?
Hard drives that are non-operational
still retain information on the disc platter.
Degaussing magnetically erases all of the
information contained on the disc platters,
thereby making the hard drive safe for disposal.
Remember, hard drives do not have to be
hooked up to be degaussed.
Hard Drives re-usable after degaussing?
No, hard drives are not reusable after degaussing
because Garner's hard drive degaussers erase
all data, formatting and control track (servo
track) information. This information is
contained on hard drives in magnetic patterns.
Garner's hard drive degaussers remove all
magnetic patterns eliminating the possibility
of recovery and ready the hard drive for
