Failed Disk Data Exposure



Here's a Friday topic: With modern disk arrays, e.g. DS8000, what is the real exposure of meaningful residual data being recovered from a single drive out of the array. I can't seem to find anything definitive other than a lot of "data may be recoverable" statements from vendors selling secure erase services. Just curious if anybody has any hard data to demonstrate an exposure or not.
