The Tableau TDW1 Drive Tool / Drive Wiper is a multi-purpose tool developed for fast, effective erasure of Hard Disk Drive (HDD) data.
TDW1 is a key product in the new Tableau Modular Acquisition accessory line.
TDW1 provides fast, secure single or multi-pass drive wiping. Device information (for HDDs, the TDC1 Drive Cooler, and TDW1) is viewable from the integrated LCD. TDW1 detects and defeats HPA / DCO hard drive protected regions. During a wiping operation, progress information, instantaneous and average rates (MB/s and GB/min), elapsed time, and time remaining are displayed on the LCD.
All TDW1 functions are accessible using the menu, select, and "arrow" buttons located on the device front panel.
TDW1 can be used standalone or directly connected to the TDC1 Drive Cooler. When connected to the TDC1, the TDW1 controls drive cooler operation during HDD wiping operations. TDW1 connects to SATA disk drives via a standard SATA power and signal interface.
