What is Secure Data Erasure?

Data erasure is a method that uses computer software applications to overwrite all the data on computer storage devices.  This includes hard drives, memory, and other removable media.  The method is also known as data cleansing, data destruction, and data wiping.

Secure Data Erasure & Hard Drive Erasure

Prevent Recovery

Manually deleting files does not delete the data – it merely removes the index to it. Commonly available software tools can easily recover data that has been erased in this way.


To prevent recovery, data erasure tools overwrite the original data using specific patterns.Some patterns still allow data recovery using specialist forensic tools. Full data erasure can only be achieved by using specialist data erasure tools.

What is the difference between data erasure, degaussing, and shredding?

Data erasure wipes the data but allows the media to be reused. Degaussing completely removes the magnetic capabilities of the media, making it useless. Shredding physically destroys the media, also making it useless.

The choice between these depends on many factors, including the level of data sensitivity, costs, and attitude to risk.
