Data wiping refers to the process of dele ing all data from the hard drive of a device. This is often done when the device is still functional, and the end goal is to remove all data and use it again in the future.

Using specialized software which operates according to specifications outlined in white papers published by the RCMP, and US Department of Defence, hard-disks are sanitized. The sanitization process involves each bit of data on a hard-disk being overwritten by an arbitrary value between 3 – 30 times. Our data wiping services ensure all personal information is wiped from the device without compromising its functionality so it can be resold or donated.
