Data Erasure Service

Data Erasure Service

Before selling or disposing of an old computer or hard drives, you’ll want to make sure personal and business information is removed from the hard drives.

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 easily 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. We also can physically crush the hard drive and you can be 100% sure that your drive is inoperable and has been permanently destroyed.
