Virginia Whinyates - VHS Conversion

We're really happy with the Video Adam, delighted the quality is as good as it is. It is only a home-grown recording of a modest wedding, but its the people in it and memories of a wonderful weekend we spent together as a family in Broadstairs that matter to us. Splendid service as always Adam Thank you - Virginia.

C. Lis - Computer Security Course

"The course was well structured and provided in-depth knowledge in an interesting, engaging and interactive way. Adam has the rare ability of keeping everybody on board - Simply fantastic"

Dave - Security Software Problem Support

"Adam I've done everything you suggested: Avira has been reinstalled and so far there have been no problems. I've done several updates and multiple system shutdowns in-between and the taskbar and desktop hasn't failed once. The whole process went really smoothly during the uninstallation and even the windows updates. I'll be watching it for a while before finally breathing easier once again - it appears that whatever was going wrong has been fixed. I am just so grateful for your advice

Joan Jones - Card Fraud Support

"Hi Adam, you will be pleased to know that the problem I had has ended good, I have not been charged anything on my credit card as a result of your independent letter so all is well and I am happy. Hope I never get in this mess again. Thank you so much!

G17 can destroy data on various formats from VHS, DAT, Floppy’s and Hard Drives using a technique called Degaussing.

Degauss vs. Overwrite

Our equipment produces an erasing field many times stronger than the erasing fields produced by the read/write heads in hard drives and tape drives. The field strength along with the encompassing magnetic field ensure the data is no longer recoverable by computer or laboratory attacks. Since we do not rely on software, our process will also completely and permanently erase failed and damaged hard drives regardless of the operating system or interface.

Hard Drives

G17 uses the Weircliffe BTE 220M to destroy hard drive data. The Weircliffe BTE 220M is SEAP 8500 (Security Equipment Assessment Panel) approved.

There are two levels of degaussing, Type 2 (Higher) and Type 1 (Lower). The BTE 220M meets Type 2.

The BTE 220M alters the magnetic charge on a hard drive, which not only eliminates the data on the drive, but also erases the factory pre-recorded servo tracks - rendering the hard drive unusable.
Other Media

We can offer the same service for VHS, DAT, Floppies, Audio Reel, ZIP Disks, Computer Reel and more - ideal for disposing of CCTV footage, unused recording media such as floppy disks and a host of other reasons why you would want your data securely and permanently erased regardless of the condition of the media

G17 can reset lost passwords, recover lost data.

We offer two levels of data recovery.

Level 1 is through deep scan software on drives that are in a working condition.
Level 2 is through sending drives off to a "Clean Lab" for data recovery

Please review our Terms & Conditions regarding Forensics before contacting us
