Every copy or print job actually stored on copier's hard drive


WILLMAR -- The digital copy machine that routinely prints and reproduces your documents may pose a privacy risk if you don't take proper steps at trade-in or disposal time.

Just about every copy machine made in the last decade contains a hard drive, and even if you don't use the hard drive to save copy or print jobs, every copy or print job is actually stored on the drive. The risk is that private data and vital private information could inadvertently become public.
