Data Erasure Service
Before selling or disposing of an old computer, you’ll want to make sure personal and business information is removed from the hard drive.
Completely erasing a hard drive isn’t as easy as just asking your computer to delete a file or reformat the drive. To safely sanitize your hard drive, you need to write over it completely. If not, there are numerous ways someone could quickly recover sensitive data on your hard drive that you thought was safely erased.
MyTECHWIZ uses 12 specifications preset, including Secure Erase, a user-selectable option, and several standards used by government agencies and guarantees data will not be restored. MyTECHWIZ can also physically crush the hard drive, and you can be 100% sure that your drive is inoperable and has been permanently destroyed.
