  • Definition of capacity: A terabyte (TB) is 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
  • SED: Self-Encrypting Drive
  • FIPS: FIPS 140-2, U.S. Federal Information Processing Standards 140-2.
  • SIE: Sanitize Instant Erase. SIE is compatible with Sanitize Device Feature set. Sanitize Device Feature set is the standard prescribed by T10(SAS) and T13(SATA) committees of American National Standards Association(ANSI), which makes it possible to invalidate the data recorded on the magnetic disks at a blink.
  • Wipe technology: Toshiba's unique technology which automatically erases data when an HDD is accessed by an unregistered system.
