TechService sanitizes your Hard Drive Securely with industry recognized software or physical destruction as needed
Reinstalling your operating system, formatting your hard drive or deleting specific files and folders doesn’t ensure your data is gone. In fact, in most cases your data is still completely accessible. That’s because common methods of deleting data only remove the directory reference to the data so it’s no longer visible. Files leave physical imprints or shadows on your hard disk and skilled computer hackers can access your confidential data, even if it has been properly deleted or overwritten.
TechService secure erasure process ensures your data is completely erased and unrecoverable. We utilize software that overwrites your data multiple times using Department-of-Defense- approved wipe patterns, ensuring that your data is unrecoverable. Software permanently removes data from IT assets such as PCs, servers, data center equipment and smart phones. Data erased cannot be recovered with any existing technology.
