Hard Drive Destruction

Gigacycle is a hard drive destruction specialist, providing a wide range of effective solutions. So, whether you’re a business looking for certified data destruction techniques for your redundant computer equipment or you want to find permanent ways to wipe hard drive devices of their data, please get in touch. We provide a free computer recycling collection service across the UK, including London and Manchester.



    What Is a Hard Drive Destruction Service?

    Hard drive destruction means destroying confidential information. It can involve several different techniques, from wiping data using erasure software to degaussing (distorting the magnetic field of a device). It may also require the physical shredding of a hard drive. Much like you would destroy documents via paper shredding, hard drive shredding involves the device going through a specialist shredder, breaking it into tiny pieces. This shredding method is only suitable if you don’t want to reuse the hard drive again.

    Why Destroy Data?

    Data protection and privacy should be a key part of any business, especially if you store information about your employees, customers and company. You may have thought about things like paper shredding for confidential waste, but what about how data is managed on equipment such as hard drives and other media? 

    If you want to make sure this type of confidential information remains secure even after your business has finished with used computers and hard drives, you need to consider a destruction or shredding service. If not, you could face fines from the ICO, especially if a lack of security policy led to a serious confidential data breach. This could result in damage to your company reputation, especially if the story is reported in the media.

    If you need any help with your company’s information security policy, contact our team.

    What Are the Different Types of Data Destruction?

    When you contact us, we give you the option of several different types of data destruction, all with their own merits. Let us explain a little more.

    Data Erasure

    As one of our most highly popular destruction solutions, data erasure is something we would highly recommend when considering this type of service. We can provide it as an alternative to shredding services, including for hard drives. Rather than shred the device, it’s overwritten using specialist software that replaces the confidential data with unusable information. 

    This secure destruction method is popular because it’s the one technique that allows you to reuse the equipment or media again. This can help you save costs if you plan to refurbish and redeploy assets at your business site again.

    Hard Drive Shredding

    Shredding is another excellent solution for those looking for magnetic media and hard drive destruction. Our shredding service involves the use of sophisticated data shredders, which we use at our computer recycling facility. However, we can also bring them to your premises if you need on site data shredding as part of your internal data privacy policy. Items are shred using interchangeable screens to accommodate different sized devices and shredding widths. We offer a:

    ·     20mm shredding service

    ·     6mm shredding service

    ·     6mm CPNI approved shredding service


    If you don’t want London shredding hard drive destruction services, one other option is hard drive degaussing. During this method, information is destroyed on tape drives, hard disks, hard drives and more – essentially, any magnetic media. Our advanced machines generate a 18,000 Gauss magnetic field that ensures all data is completely destroyed. However, the media will be unusable, so the equipment can’t be restored with new software after you destroy it.

    What Shredding Destruction Services Do You Offer?

    If you want to physically shred IT equipment, we can shred a range of devices. Services you can get:

    ·     Hard drive shredding

    ·     Hard disk shredding

    ·     Magnetic media shredding

    ·     CD shredding
