Good... now actually read the page. It supports various types of storage,
including tapes and hard disks.
V92 DIGI TAPE MASTER DEGAUSSER
HARD DRIVE ERASE
* Degauss Hard Drives
Data: Diskettes, QIC-DC 600, 2000. TK50, 70, 85, DLT,
3480/3490E/3590E, 4mm/8mm/Exabyt/Travan, PC Hard Drives
PS. I happen to work for a company that uses a similar solution for
zapping faulty drives before returning/recycling them. It is sort of
pointless to try to convince me there is no such thing...
Note that this still does not address this guy's problem (reusability of
zapped disks without manufacturer's intervention), but simply proves that
degaussing is possible.
