The article discusses the security issue and the control of memory leakages in various hard disks and optical disks. A security lies because of the prevalence of different options nowadays for information distribution, storage and retrieval. Optical disks can store numerous information in various forms including images and videos so leakage of such disks can pose a threat to organizations. Different organizations cannot risk their confidential data so an increasing trend toward in-house disk duplication is emerging. If the data security is in concern , a removable hard drive is the solution.
