Hard Drive Destruction

Hard Drive Destruction Service

As many as 53% of businesses don’t use a professional service to destroy old hard drives, USBs or other hardware that contain confidential information. Only physical destruction ensures the data on an old hard drive is 100% destroyed.

 

Your old technology could make or break your business.

If your hard drive disposal process includes erasing, reformatting, wiping or degaussing old hard drives, you and your customers are still vulnerable. In fact, as long as the drives are physically intact, all private information can be retrieved.

How to destroy a hard drive.

All Parts Direct destruction machines (hydraulic crusher or shearer) are specifically designed to destroy your hard drives so that data can never be retrieved or reconstructed. Only complete, physical destruction will ensure that your digital data is permanently destroyed. All Parts Direct offers several approaches to permanent hard drive destruction:

Shearing Services**

Slices your entire hard drive into small pieces with 40,000 lbs. of destructive force. The process completely destroys the drive platters, mechanisms, and the electronic components rendering the data unrecoverable.

Crushing Services**

Punching an irreparable hole through each hard drive with 7,500 lbs. of force pressure, destroying the drive platters, rippling and fracturing the magnetic surfaces and rendering the drive data unrecoverable.

Secure Chain of Custody

Our better-than-industry standards start with our secure chain of custody protocols. We invest in the latest technologies to ensure end-to-end tracking of your hard drives:

  • Barcode scan at every touchpoint
  • Tamper-proof containers keep hands off your materials
  • Locked trucks and secure totes keep information safe in transit
  • GPS-tracked fleets
  • Secure, monitored facilities

Get Proof of Protection.

Following every hard drive destruction service, you will receive a Certificate of Destruction confirming that your material has been securely destroyed. More than peace of mind, your Certificate of Destruction is proof that your information is no longer at risk and your business is compliant with relevant privacy laws.
