The vulnerability of information stored on PC hard drives
is a recognised security risk. Unlike other PC data storage
media the hard drive always stays with the PC. Every time
a PC leaves a companys control all the data and company
information will go with it.
Even if the hard drive breaks down the storage platters will
still contain information which could be read once repaired.
The V91 is capable of removing data from PC hard drives
in less than 20 seconds. Although in most cases this will
render the hard drive inoperative, the cost of a replacement
hard drive cannot be compared to the cost to a company if
sensitive information can be read by a third party.
Even if only used infrequently the V91 provides a cost security
solution to the protection of company, client and sensitive
To re-use your previously formatted DLTtape IV tapes

Anyone upgrading their existing DLT drive with the new DLT1
drive should understand that their existing inventory of recorded
DLTtape IV media may not be usable in the DLT1 without
thoroughly degaussing them before hand. Media recorded in
either the DLT7000 or DLT8000 format will be automatically
rejected to protect the data on the tape.
The problem is easily solved by erasing all existing DLT
tapes on the V91 bulk eraser. The V91 will erase all old data
and formats in 10 seconds leaving the tapes completely clear
and ready to use in DLT1 drives.
As improvements in shielding and proprietary advancements in
coercivity levels of the data platters in hard drives continue,
to ensure complete erasure, some hard drives may have to be
disassembled before degaussing the platters themselves on the
V91 HD/DLT and the SV91 degaussers.
For degaussers that do not require hard drive disassembly
before degaussing, please see our models V660 HDD Evo or V6000
