DBAN is a self-contained boot floppy or CD that securely wipes the hard disks of most computers. DBAN will automatically and completely delete the contents of any hard disk that it can detect, which makes it an appropriate utility for bulk or emergency data destruction.

Please print the Computing Device Surplus Certificate and complete. Once completed, secure the certificate to the computing device with tape without harming the device. No equipment will be accepted without a completed certificate!
