How do you sanitize failing HDDs and SSDs before sending out for RMA?

Let’s say the goal is to minimize risk of data breach while securing a warranty claim. What would you do normally?

* HDD: Bad sectors could cause `dd` to get stuck for a very long time. Manufacturer’s erasure tool may clear up errors in SMART, preventing a warranty claim.
* SSD: `dd` may fail to erase certain cells (e.g. blocks used for cache/OP/reserve). Secure-erase or nvme-sanitize may clear up errors in SMART, preventing a warranty claim.

  1. If you’re that concerned about your data, encrypt your data ahead of time or just physically destroy the drive.

    If it’s part of a RAID array, does it really matter? The contents will be pretty much random garbage anyhow to anyone who reads the disk, unless they have the other disks in the array, or you have a bunch of tiny files smaller than the stripe size. Not to say that someone couldn’t reconstruct a portion of your data if they really wanted to spend the resources. But why would anyone do that with an RMA drive unless they had good reason to do it?

  2. This is why I’ve encrypted my drives. When they die and I either throw them away or send them in for RMA, I don’t need to worry about the data on there. Also works out well if the drive is stolen or you lose it.

  3. It depends on the data that has lived on it and what sanitize level is needed for it. Some drives will go direct to magnet and shred; others will just get a long steam of /Dev/random

  4. My data isn’t really that sensitive

    But a regular os format, do a.slow one if you’re cautious, shouldn’t clear up smart values except for pending reallocations, which either go away or become real reallocated sectors.

    And if those clear up … Then I treat the drive as good.

  5. There is (or was, haven’t checked recently) programs with each vendor for this scenario- you would only send in the top of the drive casing for any warranty claims. Naturally this costs extra, so you’ll have to weigh that against your costs of rejected claims.

  6. If it’s sensitive data, you write the disk off as a loss and buy a new one.

    And/or send for rma only the ones with true linux isos on them. Taking into account the size, it never fails.
