Hard Drive Shredding and Degaussing

If you do not properly destroy a hard drive, the information is still recoverable. Deleting everything off your old hard drive does not completely get rid of the information on it. Destroying your hard drive is the only way to keep the information from getting into the wrong hands. Record Nations Gaithersburg has various methods to destroy your data, including:

  • Hard Drive Shredding: The hard drives are put into an industrial shredder and shredded into bits making the device unrecognizable and unusable.
  • Hard Drive Degaussing: High-power magnets are used to scramble the information on the drive. This ensures that the information is impossible to retrieve.
  • Hard Drive Crushing: A hole is punched through the hard drive, shattering the device, and making the information unrecoverable.
