Erase memory G55 Officejet Erase memory G55 Officejet dmrVA (IS/IT--Management) (OP) 1 Feb 11 10:15 Does anyone know if the G55 Office jet has a hard drive to remove and if not how to erase the non volatile memory before I dispose of this unit.Thanks RE: Erase memory G55 Officejet goombawaho (MIS) 2 Feb 11 08:51 Not many printers, especially home or small office grade printers, have hard drives. Nothing to do for you there except power it off and unplug it and all memory contents will "drain" out of the memory sticks (RAM) in a few minutes.What are you hiding? Inquiring minds are curious. RE: Erase memory G55 Officejet dmrVA (IS/IT--Management) (OP) 2 Feb 11 09:04 Thanks, Makes sense......for printers, but what about all-in-ones with scanners? RE: Erase memory G55 Officejet goombawaho (MIS) 2 Feb 11 09:16 You asked about a specific unit and I gave you the answer for that specific unit. Are you asking about a different model now??I meant (implied) printer/fax/scanner/copier (all-in-ones) when I said "printers". Sorry not to be specific.Only the higher end machines that are made more for offices of 25 people or more tend to have hard drive which store a copy of a scanned image so that they can copy it multiple times after scanning only once. And they offer storage which can be accessed via the network. RE: Erase memory G55 Officejet dmrVA (IS/IT--Management) (OP) 2 Feb 11 09:34 No I am not asking about another machine. When I said that makes sense for printers, I was assuming you did not realize the G55 was an all in one and that it had a scanner. The manual does not show a hard drive, so I should be good. As for what am I hiding, personal information that might have been scanned and printed.Thanks for your help. RE: Erase memory G55 Officejet goombawaho (MIS) 2 Feb 11 09:47 Yeah, I knew it was an all-in-one with no hard drive. I looked it up before answering.I was joking about what you're hiding. I'm sure lots of printers would have interesting stories to tell if they could talk.
