How to wipe a backup system
Provides instruction for wiping a system before re-purposing or return.
If a system needs to have all backup and site specific data deleted before returning it to Unitrends then the standard procedure is to re-image the system. The imaging process will create new file systems thus removing all proprietary data.
For sites with data sanitation regulations or organizational requirements, Unitrends recommends the use of a third party application which satisfies the prescribed security specification.

This process may be used when a system is re-purposed for a new task, for example if a local backup source system is re-purposed as a offsite backup target.
This process may also be used prior to the return of a system being traded in for a new generation system or an evaluation system being returned.
