Highly unlikely. My scanner at work doesn't save anything, everything is sent to the attached computer. I don't think it even has a hard drive installed

It will depend on the model. If it's a smaller home consumer product, then there isn't likely to be a hard drive. Higher end office models often do have them. Many business level Printers, Copiers, and Multifunction Printer/Copier/Scanners manufactured since the early 2000's contain a hard drive, storing an electronic image of every document copied or scanned on that machine. Depending on the size, use, and other issues, scanned, printed, or copied information could be on the hard drive for quite some time.

There is this CBS story regarding the hard drive issue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iC38D5am7go

At my office, we are required to remove and destroy hard drives from computers, printers, scanners, and copiers if they are going outside of our organization.
