In order to achieve the dust free environment needed for proper data recovery, Kroll Ontrack has installed hospital-grade high-efficiency particulate arresting (HEPA) air filters to remove dust particles from the air.
"To state the old analogy, you can liken the heads of a mechanical hard drive, moving over the top of the hard drive platters, like a Jumbo jet flying at 800km/h a few centimetres off the ground — if anything large gets in the way, then it will certainly end in disaster. This is also true of hard drives as it just takes one large dust particle to cause a hard drive to crash; hence the need for clean air," the company says.
