Secure Hard Drive Data Deletion


When used computers or hard drives are repurposed within a department or through donation or sale, it is important to ensure that the data on those drives has been securely deleted. Secure data deletion is possible through a process known as "disk scrubbing," which can be achieved through both hardware and software means.


ITServices does not offer hardware disk scrubbing service. Instead we recommend that users have their drives securely destroyed. Please refer to the Secure Hard Drive Destruction & Disposal page for more information.
