Computer Recycling & Data Sanitization

May 5, 2014

ImageGetting rid of your old XP machine?  Need to make sure your old computer is properly erased?

Here at Computer Guy Consulting we can help you move off XP, transfer all your information and email, and then properly dispose of your old computer.  I can erase your old hard disk using software that meets the Department Of Defense standard.

Official Mumbo Jumbo:

Definition: DoD 5220.22-M is a software based data sanitization method used in various data destruction programs to overwrite existing information on a hard drive or other storage device.

The DoD 5220.22-M data sanitization method is usually implemented in the following way:

Pass 1: Writes a zero and verifies the write
Pass 2: Writes a one and verifies the write
Pass 3: Writes a random character and verifies the write

Computer recycling and data destruction doesn’t have to be a concern.  Computer Guy Consulting will help you deal with your old technology.  Need this service? give me a call 325-4656.
