Hard Drive Removal Policy

Allen Young Office Machines, Hard Drive Removal Policy

The Sharp or Ricoh devices that contain hard drives come standard with the Hard Drive Format feature. The Hard Drive Format feature assists customers in complying with applicable regulations or internal corporate policies, wich may require the overwriting of sensitive data prior to equipment removal.

If another vendor is replacing the machine AYOM will perform a Hard Disk Format for the charge of $450 per unit upon request. If you choose not to use AYOM for Hard Disk Format, the responsibility and liability for any stolen or "mined" data is yours.

The standard Hard Drive Format feature will perform a one-pass overwrie of internal hard drive.
