Refurbished Hard Disk

Our company use MSA 2012 fc. This is realy old product, but it still work. We bay refurbished Hard Drive. And today I replaced leftover HDD and I see in WEB Interface another Virtual Disks like: "cctv3-vdisk2", "cctv3-vdisk3" and "vd01".

Now, I have a question. If I replaced under warranty my HDD, you can sell our information to other companies? After the recovery disk you are not are formatting it?

Re: Refurbished Hard Disk

OK. I'm paraphrasing.

If I replaced under warranty my HDD, HP can sell our information to other companies? After the recovery disk HP specialists are not formatting it?

Re: Refurbished Hard Disk

So you got the "new" disk directly from HPE?


Hope this helps!

Re: Refurbished Hard Disk

No, I bought from a reseller.

This could be the problem, they may take back old products and sell the parts as spare parts.

How about complaining there?

Question is - is it a fault of the old owner or the reseller or both - however, it is a scandal.


Hope this helps!
