It can be hard to know which computer device is the specific part you need to destroy, which is why it’s so much easier to use a specialist waste company than attempt this process yourself. The magnetic disk inside a hard drive is one of the most important parts of a hard drive to destroy. At Gigacycle, whether you choose to physically shred a hard drive device or destroy data using another method, we ensure sensitive information on the asset can never be recovered.
The costs of a destruction or shredding service will depend on where you’re based (e.g. London), the computer recycling service you need and the specialist you use. Hard drives can often be collected for free, but the price from this point will be based on what you require. Always ask for a quote and check what cost includes. It may be that you can save time and money with free collections for old equipment and choosing an all-in-one service that deals with both data and hard drive destruction solutions together.
When looking at the ways to destroy hard drives, there are three main types of hard drive destruction.
This type of hard drive destruction is one of the most commonly chosen. Much like you would use a paper shredding method for confidential waste, this is one of the best ways to ensure a hard drive can never be used again. The shredding service techniques break up computer media devices into fragments as tiny as 6mm.
Data erasure is a certified form of data destruction, and one of its benefits is that it can be used for larger equipment than hard drives, which won’t normally fit through our shredders. Rather than shred equipment, the process involves taking computers and media, and using specialist software to overwrite every single block of data the device holds. Unlike shredding, the asset can be updated with new hardware or software to be used again. Businesses may choose to reinstall the equipment in their business or sell it.
If shredding and erasure aren’t appropriate, you could consider degaussing for your drive equipment. This sophisticated method securely destroys data and information on the device by disturbing its magnetic field. However, much like shredding, it deems the drive unusable.
