Click on the “Find Machine” button and all the unit details will be automatically entered into the log including model, serial number and firmware version. Further data regarding operator, customer and media is then entered via keyboard (or optional barcode scanner).

    Once the destruction process is complete, the lower portion of the screen will show all the details of the destruction including date, time, Media Serial number, and confirmation that the media was destroyed successfully. If this data is highlighted and the print button pressed all the details on the screen along with all the data entered will be printed as a report. As new media is erased the details will be added to the Media Processed Log in the lower half of the screen. By highlighting erase records, the logs of one or more can be printed as required. There is a Supervisor Section in the software which is Password protected. This allows the Supervisor to decide which fields are required and which fields must be completed by the Operator. The log record is stored in the PC and can be archived at any time or exported as a .csv file.
