Hi, I run a pc recycle & reuse pcs for businesses, and resell ’em. In cases where I receive SAS drives, including servers, I am unable to data wipe the sas drives, for I don’t have servers (w/SAS intereface) set up with Windows. I data wipe my SATA drives in Windows 10, or Windows 7. But I lose the capacity, e.g., server workstation with sas interface, to read SAS drives w/out setting up a Dell Server (which I don’t want to do). So my question is:
A) Can the Sata to SAS adapter interface work without the Data Recovery Tool, to be read in Windows 10 or 7 (on a pc workstation)? B) Secondly, if so (can it be read), can I do the DATA wiping, without corrupting the sectors, once wiped? C) If the DATA recovery tool is needed to both read & recover (with the adapter in an effort to data wipe), can data wipe be done in Windows 10/7?

I never offered data recovery before, because of the investment in time and money, but will consider it. I am more interested in data wiping, since once I received hardware (e.g., Servers, PCS, Workstations), I consequently have to address & guarantee data privacy and security associated with the hard drives (SAS or otherwise) in order to salvage the drives. Thanks

SATA hard drive data recovery has been the most common data recovery cases within data recovery labs worldwide. SAS hard drive data recovery is not that common but it will be more competitive if users can offer SAS hard drive data recovery services.

SAS and SATA hard drives have different physical interfaces and firmware structures. Most available data recovery equipment in the market are for SATA hard drives and few are for SAS hard drive data recovery. Dolphin SAS to SATA adapter works with SATA data recovery equipment to image SAS hard drives or extract lost data from SAS hard drives.

Dolphin Data Lab has one good combination of data recovery equipment and adapters to recover lost data from SATA hard drives, SAS hard drives, SSDs, USB drives, etc.

Please note: Firmware repair for SAS drives and USB flash drives is not supported for the moment.
