Are you upgrading your computer? Do you plan on installing a new hard drive on your computer? Let us ask you what are you planning to do with the old hard drive?
You could donate it or give it away to a friend or family. Or you may want to sell the hard drive for some money. But there are people who just put the hard drive in the closet or shelf, where it sits gathering dust. Then one day they just throw it in the trash or take it to a recycling center.
Is this the right thing to do? Donating or giving it away or selling the drive or recycling it, all are great options. But is it safe? Well, you probably copied all the data over to another drive, and deleted the copies on the old hard drive which you are disposing. You may have even formatted the hard drive to ensure no data remains on the computer. So you don’t have to worry about this, right?
Wrong. This reminds us of the old saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” What treasure are we talking about? Data, more specifically, your personal data.
Did you have a lot of personal data on the hard drive? Of course, you did, that is what everyone does on their personal computer. So, did you share the computer with anyone? It is possible, maybe a friend or a fmaily member was allowed to use the computer when they were there, because, you don’t have to worry about your private data being stolen.
But what about when a computer technician or some other user has to use your computer? What if you had to temporarily loan the computer or laptop to someone else? Will you give the computer to them, with your personal data on it? if you were scared then, you should be just as worried when you are disposing the drive after just formatting it.
Why? Because your hard drive will still have traces of your files on it. Hard drives don’t store all the files in a stack or something, they use clusters. These clusters are a combination of several sectors, and each sector may have a part of a file. So, these remnant files, could be there even after a complete disk format. That’s how you are usually able to recover data after deleting them using shift and delete.
What if the hard drive falls into the wrong hands? A cyberthief, or a hacker, or someone who can gain access to your documents or photos and use it for malicious purposes like stealing your bank information, or worse, your identity.
That is why you must never get rid of a hard drive after a simple format. Instead, you should wipe the disk clean, by overwriting the free space. Now, this may be a tough task when you are overwriting the entire drive’s space, correct?
Not when you have the right tools, and east-tec DisposeSecure. The program truly lives up to its name, which is just what we want.
But wait, if you want to erase a hard drive, how will the program run? Well, you can run east-tec DisposeSecure using a bootable USB, CD, DVD or even a floppy drive if you still have one of those.
If you have multiple hard drives, then you can use the Windows Module, which is actually the most user friendly option. This can be useful, as it allows you to erase any partition or drive, as long as the partitions are logical, and not primary, as in a system drive, you can delete disks using the program’s GUI.
You can use east-tec DisposeSecure to create a bootable media, which can be a USB flash drive, or a CD or DVD, which you can write the program to, or an ISO image which you can use to burn on to a different disc.
The bootable disks use a DOS based version of East-Tec DisposeSecure, which is still quite user friendly. All you have to do is select the disks which you want to delete securely. and the algorithm for overwriting the free space, to prevent the recovery of any files. There is a built in sector viewer in the application, which you can use to verify the sectors, before the wiping process begins.
