RE: Hard Drive eraser recommendation



According to the DSS (Defense Security Service), the only approved method of clearing/sanitizing magnetic disks is by degauss and destruction.

DSS Clearing and Sanitization Matrix
http://oregon.gov/DAS/OP/docs/policy/state/107-009-005_Exhibit_B.pdf

This is in effect since June 28, 2007.


If you're just wanting to use the "DoD wipe" for personal or private company use though, I'd recommend DBAN. It's free, and prior to the new DSS rules coming down, we used to use this in our shop.

Take a look at this product

under $300 - usually under $200 wipes to DOD standard. I can get you pricing if you want to contact me off the list.

My understanding of it, is that it writes all random data a number of times. I havent needed to use it in a while, but I think it even gives you options on how to wipe, I could be mistaken though since I havent used it in a while now.

Jose,

Does it write all 0's , then all 1's and then a random pattern of 1's
and 0's for a number of times to the disk or what?  If not, then it is
not
worth
the time to download.  You must destroy all traces of the data.

I've known a few people who have used it, and haven't heard any
complaints. Not sure on cost. Good luck!
