Hard Drives Hold A lot of Information they need to be destroyed when they are no longer needed.
A1 DATASHRED provides certified hard drive shredding services that guarantees the information on your hard drives will never be accessible again.
A single hard drive can contain millions of pages of confidential information. When hard drives reach the end of their lifecycle it is important to make sure that the confidential information on the hard drives is destroyed. Formatting or degaussing hard drives, tapes, and other magnetic media is not enough. This practice does not guarantee that all of the information has been destroyed. The only way to make sure the information can never be accessed again is to physically destroy each hard drive.
