What is the process of data erasure ?

- 2024-01-11 -
The process of data erasure involves removing or deleting data from a storage device or medium, such as a hard drive, SSD, or USB drive, in a way that makes it unrecoverable. This typically involves overwriting the data multiple times with random patterns of 1s and 0s or using specialized software to perform a secure erase. The goal is to ensure that the data cannot be retrieved or reconstructed, even with the use of specialized recovery tools.
