Media degaussing services are a quick and easy way to perform a data erasure procedure on end-of-life-cycle media. Media degaussing involves discharging strong magnetic fields over electronic storage media devices such as hard drives, floppy disks, or tape drives in order to permanently scramble the data and data tracks, leaving it totally unrecoverable.
Media degaussing is the quickest way to erase - without physically destroying - traditional reusable analog storage media such as: VHS, tape drives, and floppy disks. This makes it an excellent solution for destroying data that is no longer needed or deemed necessary for operation of the business.
Modern hard drives and some tape backup drives are not degaussed, as the degaussing process not only destroys data but also renders the read/write head positioning mechanism unusable. Degaussing destroys the sector tracks and information permanently stored in the servo control.
