Hard Disk Data Erase Utility

When disposing the computer or transferring the ownership, erase all hard disk data in order to avoid data leakage. Even if
you erase the data or initialize the hard disk using normal Windows commands, the data can be read with some special soft-
ware. Use the hard disk data erase utility to erase the data completely.
Note that transferring of the ownership without uninstalling the commercial software will be a violation of the software's
license agreement.
The hard disk data erase utility erases data using an overwriting method, but there is a possibility that due to malfunctions or
other operational errors, data may not be completely erased. There are also specialized devices that may be able to read
data that has been erased using this method. If you need to erase highly confidential data, we recommend that you contact
a company that specializes in this process. Panasonic Corporation will bear no responsibility for losses or damages suffered
as a result of the use of this utility.
NOTE
Even if hard disk data erase is performed, the number of times of DVD's region code setting will not be reset.
This utility cannot erase data for specific partitions. However, the entire hard disk data including the data of the parti-
tion with recovery tools will be erased.
Preparation

• The Product Recovery DVD-ROM for Windows Vista (included)
