Wipe Seagate Hard Drive

Seagate hard drives deliver sleek, sophisticated storage designed to help you to store all your photos, videos and music easily, protect business-critical data, and access your files anytime, anywhere. When you want to get rid of all your old hard drives by throwing away or giving or selling to someone else, simply deleting your confidential files or reformatting the drives will not be enough to ensure your privacy. When you delete a file it isn't actually removed from the disk. It is important to make sure all your personal information is removed before discarding the computer. Deleting and formatting does not wipe a hard drive. Deleted files can be undeleted and formatted hard drives can be recovered using recovery software. To be in the safer side, you must wipe both the slack space and free space. To ensure that your private information is gone forever, you will have to wipe the hard drive using special software. Data wiping overwrites all data space on a storage device, replacing important data with garbage data. After wiping a hard drive, you can be confident that whatever information that was stored on the drive is now gone forever

Drive wiping is beneficial for privacy, since most delete functions don’t actually delete your data. When a file or folder is selected for deletion, the operating system designates those sectors that your files reside in to be re-writeable. Deleted files can be easily restored using data recovery software. Even if you have saved new data to your drive or reformatted, there’s still a possibility that the partition can be rebuilt and files can be restored. If you haven’t erased the disk properly, others can reopen and rebuild your personal data. Therefore, you need to leave no traces and make sure that your data is removed beyond recovery. For this, use hard drive wiping software like Remo MORE Software. With Remo MORE Software, you can assure that the files and folders which you have deleted from your computer won’t be recovered by any means. It securely erases your hard drive to ensure all of your personal data is unrecoverable.
