At my place of employment we need to get erase around 50 hard drives so that we can sell the pcs since they are too old for us to use. Is there any way we can erase all the hard drives at once or do we just have to do them individually?
If you have norton ghost maybe you could make a 'blank' image and then ghost that to all the computers.
First thought that came to mind.
Other than that I would say you would need to do each one individually.
Then the best thing to do is destroy the harddrives. To be 100% sure that the data isnt recoverable would require you to write and rewrite 0's to the whole drive on each computer which, depending on drive size, could take hours to do.
I havent used norton much so I am not sure if a blank image would essentially write 0's to the drive or not.
Maybe someone else here would know.
