Hard drive wipe is not new to us, while the data security awareness doesn’t keep up with this concept. And the public are still wondering how to erase the sensitive data, just cast aside or use free hard drive wipe software is ok enough; or professional hard drive wipe tool should be employed.

Plaso (plaso langar að safna öllu) is the Python based back-end engine used by tools such as log2timeline for automatic creation of a super timelines. The goal of log2timeline (and thus plaso) is to provide a single tool that can parse various log files and forensic artifacts from computers and related systems, such as network equipment to produce a single correlated timeline. This timeline can then be easily analysed by forensic investigators/analysts, speeding up investigations by correlating the vast amount of information found on an average computer system. Plaso is intended to be applied for creating super timelines but also supports creating [http://blog.kiddaland.net/2013/02/targeted-timelines-part-i.html targeted timelines].
How important it is to erase data?
+
 
Rapid technological change and the short lifespan of IT assets, has articulated the need to permanently erase the data on retired equipment. The popularity of removable media such as USB drives has grown exponentially resulting in the alarming rise in data leaks through these devices, further heightening the need to properly wipe electronic data via hard drive wipe tool.
+
The Plaso project site also provides [[4n6time]], formerly "l2t_Review", which is a cross-platform forensic tool for timeline creation and review by [[David Nides]].
Information assets pose a significant risk due to the large volumes of confidential information that is stored on them. Data must be completely erased before IT assets are disposed of, recycled, reused or donated.

What is the consequence of Failure to erase data could result in:

How is your data leaked?
+
 
Have you thought of the way you deal with your used electronic devices? How do you deal with the electronic storage media like USB stick? Just left it alone or throw them away, and then forget you have ever had such devices. Data leak is right rooting from the carelessly discarded hard drive or USB stick which could contain confidential data such as credit card details, social security numbers, bank details or clients’ information.

How to erase data safely and sustainably with a reliable hard drive wipe tool?
+
File System Format support is provided by [[dfvfs]].
Presently there are three ways to erase data from electronic media: Software overwrite/Degauss/ Physical destruction.
+
 
Usually free hard drive wipe software is adopted by large amount of individuals however cannot be used if the media is damaged or is not writeable, unable to carry out data erasing on the locked/hidden sectors and depend on the BIOS/OS to perform the data erasing process. And meanwhile it cannot achieve the data erasing compliance appointed by government or organization
+
=== File formats ===
Meanwhile, both degaussing and physical destruction cannot erase the data safely, and don’t provide reporting of the data erasing process which need to prove regulatory compliance; meanwhile hard drives and other electronic storage cannot be reused anymore, and it is not an environment-friendly approach.

Then what is the safest and sustainable way to erase data? Yes, DATA COPY KING is such a unique external disk wipe tool which performs data erasing independently from PC simply bypassing BIOS/OSAND and carrying out data erasing on the hidden/locked sectors, even on the hard drives with severe bad sectors and hard drives with clicking noises. Meanwhile, DATA COPY KING can sanitize the hard drive or other electronic storage devices to factory-level, so that they can be utilized again in an environment-friendly way to erase data.

Therefore, please keep informed and an eye to our website for more information of this new product with hard drive wipe function to erase data permanently, which will be released by SalvationDATA Technology in late February of 2010. More information please email us at info[at]salvationdata.com.

This timeline can then be easily analysed by forensic investigators/analysts, speeding up investigations by correlating the vast amount of information found on an average computer system. Plaso is intended to be applied for creating super timelines but also supports creating targeted timelines.
