No one likes the thought of a failed hard drive, especially in a world where sensitive data on that hard drive could be at increased risk of exploitation. New and sophisticated data recovery technologies have made enormous amounts of confidential information vulnerable, even on malfunctioning drives. In addition, national security issues and data privacy regulations dictate greater-than-ever attention to security measures.

As a result, many companies now choose to retain possession of their failed hard drives instead of returning them to the manufacturer during replacement, a procedure that can conflict with many standard warranty agreements.

That's why Dell offers the Keep Your Hard Drive service, which enables you to keep a failed hard drive that is covered under limited warranty when your replacement hard drive is delivered. It’s a solution that puts you in charge of your data and hard drive disposal.
