Degaussing

SAMS offers a fast and efficient way to erase data on a hard drive or other media entirely and permanently. Degaussing destroys remnant magnetic fields on magnetic components, heads and domains on hard drives by exposing them to a strong magnetic field. This guarantees that your information is no longer retrievable and the hard drive that’s been degaussed can never be used again.
