How to Wipe Your Hard Drive
Parent Page(s): Disposal & Donation
Before discarding your computer, please check with Arts ISIT to see if the hard drive needs to be securely wiped. Never throw away a computer unless it has been checked by us. We use RCMP and the Canadian Department of Defence compliant methods to clear your data. In general, if your computer has been used for UBC services, it will need to be wiped.
Bring your computer to the Arts ISIT Help Desk at Buchanan C113. We will remove the hard drive on the spot, and return the computer back to you.
