Clean as a Whistle

Image_-_Drive_eRazer_UltraWhat’s the most tedious and onerous task a school IT department has to perform on a regular basis? If it’s up to me, I vote for cleaning a used hard drive to sweep it clean of data, potentially private material and any loose malware. CRU-DatasPort’s eRazer Ultra can wipe clean any 2.5- or 3.5-inch hard drive, regardless of whether it is an SATA or older IDE device. Rather than manually deleting files, which leaves remnants of the underlying data, eRazer Ultra writes over the entire drive with 10 different methods. When done, nothing is left. The device has a two line display, has a parallel printer port for creating a verification label for the drive and costs $250.
