Hard Drive Degaussers

With 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 and tapes.

It 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 platters. 

Although 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.

Degaussing 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. 

Once 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 in on.

Note: 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


When should I degauss my media?

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.

Are 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 disposal.
