CNE Direct is engaged in the reverse distribution of hard disk drives (HDD) and other storage products. We are experts in managing the receipt, sorting, testing, remapping and reselling (remarketing) of hard drives. Our logistics centers in the US, Europe, and Asia have the capability to physically manage the flow of products from most any location. Our team of global commodity managers has the ability to analyze current market conditions and promote product through CNE Direct’s global trading team with the purpose of moving product quickly and at the best market value.
For hard drives in particular CNE has an advanced capability for data erasure, testing, remapping, grading, and reselling. We have test centers with multiple 40 port drive arrays connected to a proprietary software system that:
- Provides complete erasure of any data on the HDD
- Diagnoses the quality of each HDD sector looking for grown defects
- Electronically remaps “bad” sectors when possible
- Detects POH (Power-On Hours)
- Produces a report showing specific quality level and POH referenced by drive manufacturer, part number, and serial number
- Erase to NIST 800-88 standard
