When information is deleted on the computer, it still remains on its hard drive and is therefore still forensically recoverable. More importantly, physically damaging a hard drive brings no guarantee that the information on it will be destroyed. In fact, more often that not, the information can still be recovered even if if the exterior has been severely. To bring this idea into perspective, the hard drive on the space shuttle Columbia that disintegrated while reentering Earth’s was still easily able to be recovered. The hard drive was sent plummeting to Earth after the explosion in the form of a fireball where it was exposed to radiation, chemicals, and rocket fuel for some time before it was finally recovered. When the recovery team did find it, they were still able to recover almost 100% of the information on it. There is only method to ensure that the information on hard drives gets completely eliminated is to use a magnetic device which will strip it of its memory. Degaussers are the tool to get this job done. Whitaker Brothers offers various types of degaussers that strip hard drives of their data so that you can ensure your sensitive information is completely erased.
