Don't forget to erase your hard drives

[ #10018 ]

Morning Edition interviewed Simson Garfinkel about virtual dumpster diving for hard drives (RealAudio, rundown). He and his colleagues bought a bunch of used drives then looked at what was on the platters. In some cases they could just read the drive, and in other cases they had to recover it.

His article is in the January/Febuary 2003 IEEE journal as "Remberance of Data Past".
