Copier Machines Save Images Of Every Document They Copy

Did you know that the image of every document copied is saved on a copier's internal hard drive?  And most copiers do not provide a means for erasing these images.  When your employer, your doctor and your lawyer replace their copiers the old copiers leave with copies of all the documents they copied.

FYI - Hewlett Packard Multifunction printers do not have this problem. They only retain data that the user tells them to, that is if they even have a hard drive. I don't know about other brands though.
