Magnet Exchanger Tools
To remove other more difficult hard drive magnets you will require special equipment, sadly we have also seen many drives where the data has been lost when a technician has used pliers. Unfortunately these are not accurate in removing the magnet the pliers do not grip the magnet securely. Many clients have asked us to recover the data after another company has dropped the magnet inside the hard drive. The damage can happen in different ways from dropping the magnet onto platters or heads and causing shock or scratches. H.D.R.C. has developed a unique and easy to use tool that is operated by one hand and prevents damage to the hard drive by keeping the magnet held in place until you choose to release it. It is very simple for anyone to use just simply press a button to either release or grip. Our online physical data recovery course also shows you the simple and easy to pick up technique to remove the magnet without struggling. Training includes how to remove the one piece magnet from Samsung hard drives safely.
Magnets are used in many data recovery and destruction scenarios, for example the hard drive magnet is capable of being a good eraser for DAT tapes, but the hard drive itself requires a degausser for the same level of security and destruction.
