Sorry but you have to report it, and keep your records for 7 years. No wiping no, no, no


I have an idea. Let's form a quick LLC Co. Underbid all the other *wipe away the evidence* companies to get the contract. Then, turn the whole pile of IRS computers over to Trey Gowdy...

They have never heard of Auslogic from Piriform LOL. It does a 35 pass government standard overwrite that even destroys the sideband data. Either these people in the IRS are total idiots or they think everyone else are idiots.

Cheers - Dave


Recovering tech must be getting better, did it used to be 8 passes? Or has it always been 35 with an overwrite of 1's and 0's? I don't remember.


Deep erase used to be variable/selectable pass under Norton Utils, government standards were generally presets around 7 passes, so yep, you are correct. Recently, that number of passes has increased to accommodate full sideband destruction, those areas on either side of the heads on the platter-track that can still contain "bleed" data/information. If they really wanted to get clever, they could just use high-power tape demagnetizers, I've done that before on disks containing sensitive court and military data.

I have software to fully recover at least down to 3 full DOS erases. I have tried 7 and it was difficult and missed a lot of data, about 25%. I doubt I could recover 20 passes of 1's and 0's, 35, no way.

BTW, Auslogic is free for personal use, so for corporate use it is very inexpensive. The IRS is simply comprised of morons that have the IQ of lumber. Auslogic is Here.

CCleaner is from Piriform, I made a mistake there sorry. They have the 35 pass erasing function also and is also free for personal use, cheap for corporate use. CCleaner at Piriform is Here.

Cheers - Dave


Thanks Dave I already use CCleaner. I have no worries I don't even have a single naughty picture to keep private, but I do have a picture of the dog in a compromising position.

Yeah but he would have to let us buy him lunch, he would have to be a ball to talk with for an hour. Great Idea.

They want to outsource the destruction of property that might incriminate them? Yeah. Makes sense.
I could do that myself in a day anyways. Just give me a high powered magnet and a forklift.


Well the US government has never had an over abundance of intelligence.

Especially at the IRS.

Because Obama himself has told them, Fox is the Anti-Christ. That's why...


He has that backasswards.

All our rights come from the 'creator', and the creator is not government.

And his ideology is the clear antithesis of that.

Hence one can call Obama the antichrist, and be right.

Dude, seriously. I don't think we can agree. That's one of the signs of the Apocalypses.

Look, Even I will say he isn't the antichrist. But he does act like one.

Just out of curiosity and please forgive my ignorance but.........

Why in the hell weren't ALL HARD DRIVES confiscated from the very beginning any way when the scandal first broke???

Okay, at least why weren't they taken after the first claim/lie of 'missing data'?

Pretty soon, they'll have nothing left..............which is what their intention is

Once again, if that was one of us, our house/office would have been ransacked and any & all computers/hard drives/flash drives would have been confiscated IMMEDIATELY!!!!

But they are not us and we are not them

They are allowed to do as they please
Must be nice.....*sigh*

Continued Corruption: Lerner’s ‘Missing’ Hard Drive was Recoverable



The House Ways and Means Committee has had enough excuses from those seeking to protect the IRS from the fallout surrounding the IRS scandal. The committee learned on Tuesday that the hard drive containing the so-called “lost” emails from Lois Lerner’s office was “scratched,” but very much recoverable, despite earlier assertions by government IT specialists.

The IRS has maintained that the computer of disgraced former IRS Exempt Organizations Director Lois Lerner crashed in 2011 and that despite recovery efforts by IT professionals, the emails concerning the IRS’ years-long campaign of harassment directed at Tea Party and various conservative groups were lost forever.




Tea and Crumpets anybody?

Special invite from Lady Lois Lerner, 5th Baroness of Shillington

Is there an email service/system anywhere that stores the emails exclusively on the recipient's machine?

I say we water board everyone involved. I bet we get some answers in record time.
