Hard Drives


Hard Drives Contain Sensitive Information

A hard drive (or disk drive) is a device for storing and retrieving digital information, primarily computer data. It consists of one or more rapidly rotating disks called platters. The drives also have magnetic heads arranged to write data to the surfaces and read it from them.


According to a CBS News report, nearly every digital copier built since 2002 contains a hard drive storing an image of every document copied, scanned or emailed. If you have made a copy of nearly every important document you have, these may include things like your driver’s license, social security card, passport, medical records, car titles, property deeds, mortgage records, and insurance papers.


Should your copier hard drive fall into the wrong hands, it only takes minutes to locate and remove the hard drive. Then, using a forensic program available for free from the internet, a scan of the drive can be run downloading up to tens of thousands of images in less than 12 hours.
