Data is stored in magnetic media, such as hard drives, floppy disks and magnetic tape. This is achieved by very small areas on the data surface called magnetic domains which change their magnetic alignment to be in the direction of an applied magnetic field. Degaussing, commonly called erasure, leaves the domains in random patterns with no preference to orientation, thereby rendering previous data unrecoverable. There are some domains whose magnetic alignment is not randomized after degaussing and the information that these domains represent is commonly called magnetic remanence. Proper degaussing will ensure that there is insufficient magnetic remanence to reconstruct the data. Fujitsu's MagErasure ME-P3/P3E is a device that can generate a magnetic field for degaussing magnetic storage media.
