The V91HD/DLT bulk eraser is a high energy, bulk eraser especially
to tackle the erasing of hard disk drives and of DLT tapes.
Hard Disk Drives
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 company’s 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.
In keeping with our policy of recognising user requirements we
have introduced the V91 HD/DLT. The unit 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 computer
To re-use your previously formatted DLTtape IV™ tapes in the
DLT1 tape drive, Verity Systems has introduced the V91 HD/DLT.
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
The problem is easily solved by erasing all existing DLT tapes
on Verity Systems’ 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.
