“The term ‘Disk Sanitization’ might be new for most of us, but plays important role in securing the data integrity“
What is disk sanitization?
Disk Sanitization is the process of eliminating sensitive data or information from storage media like hard disk drives. In cases, when the data on the hard disk is erased, some or all information about the data may still remains on the hard drive. Such a condition where data still exist even after formatting or erasing the drive is called ‘Data Remanence‘, which can be easily recover by any data recovery software. To tackle data remanence problem in the hard drives, we use sanitization process.
Choosing to go for disk sanitization services may help you to get rid of any possible accident of data drainage due to hazardous media recycling, in case of system handout, casual practices of data wiping. Formatting the entire hard disk drive is mere a temporarily solution to erase the confidential data. With any file recovery software the data on the formatted drive can be recovered back, reused or misused. So, Stellar won’t suggest you to only format the hard disk drive before you dispose it off. Make sure you wipe it – sanitize it.
