Harddrive Audit before destruction program

Hello, I am trying to find a software or vendor that can assist me. I need to be able to have a audit summery of harddrive folder and files with drive serial numbers, ect and certified that i was destroyed for record keeping. I have tried WinDirStat , Book Nuke, no luck. Does anyone have any experience working in IT of lawyer offices, government, fiance, ect that know a way to produce this type of custom report ?

Welcome to EE.

That's an interesting question to say the least. Running DIR /s from a command prompt should give you what you want. It would give you a list of all files on the drive. You could pipe it to a text file if that is what you need "DIR /s > directory.txt". The drive serial # would of course be printed on the drive itself.

There are management tools that can gather the information for you, but it doesn't sound like something you would do often enough to justify buying something?

Edit to add: If you are sending the drives to a service for destruction, look for one that will issue a cert that says the drive with serial # was destroyed.

In our industry, we are required to follow this procedure often. I have tried using software but they do not offer what I need to do in one package.

You didn't mention if you have to wipe the drive before. So I assuming sending it for destruction was sufficient. That command file should give you what you need as far as a content list. It would be a long list, but I know lawyers love their paperwork.
