Coercivity of the data media vs degaussing
For the data to be effectively removed, the electromagnetic field emitted by the device should be much higher than the magnetic coercivity of the carrier.
*Not re-usable after degaussing – after demagnetization, the carrier is no longer usable
Other carriers and devices such as SSD memories, SD cards, mobile phones, smartphones, tablets etc. are only subject to physical destruction.
