StarTech Hard Drive Eraser for 2.5 or 3.5 in. SATA Drives - 4-Bay
This hard drive eraser provides standalone, simultaneous drive erasing for up to four 2.5 in. or 3.5 in. SATA hard drives or solid-state drives.
Save time with a four-bay, standalone eraser
Unlike hard-drive docking stations or adapters that require a computer connection and software to erase drives, this hard drive sanitizer features standalone erasing that doesn?t require a host computer. This avoids the hassle of connecting your drives to a host computer and protects your drives from external security threats like remote data access.
The four-bay design maximizes efficiency by batching multiple drives in single erase projects, saving you valuable time. The hard drive eraser supports USB 3.0, also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1, with file transfer rates of up to 5Gbps.
Maximum versatility with multiple erase modes
Using industry-recognized erase modes, the hard drive eraser securely sanitizes the data from your 2.5 in. or 3.5 in. SSDs or HDDs. It supports nine erase modes including Quick Erase, Single and Multi-pass Overwrites, Custom Erase, Secure Erase and Enhanced Secure Erase. The Multi-pass Overwrite (3-Pass Full Disk Overwrite) erase procedures meet the requirements of DoD (5220.22-M) standards.
Support for a variety of erase modes makes this drive eraser perfect for virtually any professional application. Single-Pass Overwrite is ideal for IT technicians and system administrators who decommission and repurpose old hard drives, while Quick and Secure Erase, Single Pass Overwrite and Multi-pass Overwrite modes (meeting DoD standards) are ideal solutions for research laboratories, health offices, law offices and accountants who manage sensitive data and require secure erasing to avoid potential privacy breaches.
In addition to supporting 2.5 in./3.5 in. SATA SSDs and HDDs, the hard drive eraser also works with 2.5 in. and 3.5 in. IDE hard drives, mSATA drives and SATA M.2 drives using a compatible StarTech.com adapter:
IDE hard drives: Use StarTech.com adapter SAT2IDEADP SATA to 2.5 in. or 3.5 in. IDE Hard Drive Adapter for HDD Docks
mSATA drives: Use StarTech.com adapter SAT32MSAT257 mSATA SSD to 2.5 in. SATA Adapter Converter
M.2 drives: Use StarTech.com adapter SAT32M225 M.2 NGFF SSD to 2.5 in SATA Adapter Converter
Hassle-free operation and erase log recording
The hard drive eraser features convenient menu navigation that ensures fast and efficient performance, with push-button operation and a built-in LCD display that clearly identifies the erase modes and task status. You can also connect the eraser to a computer to quickly access the drive that's connected to port-1.
To ensure your records are complete for auditing, the hard drive eraser features a 9-pin serial port that can connect to a serial printer to provide on-demand erase logs.
The SATERASER4 is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
