    What is disk shredding?

    Disk shredding is much like hard drive shredding. The magnetic disk is often the part of the device which stores confidential data, so it's the component which needs securely destroying. At Gigacycle, we can shred and erase both hard disks and hard drives.

    What is the easiest way to destroy a hard drive?

    The easiest way to destroy a hard drive is to call us. We offer specialist computer recycling services in the UK, including secure data destruction techniques, certified data erasure and free IT waste collections.

    Do you only offer shredding services?

    While we do provide shredding services as part of our recycling solutions, we also offer a wide range of other options. This includes data erasure services, degaussing, re-marketing, refurbishments, IT installations, environmentally-friendly IT recycling, IT asset management and more.

    Is hard drive shredding permanent?

    Shredding is a permanent form of hard drive destruction or media destruction. Much like if you used paper shredding on a paper document, the destroyed parts can't be put back together again. However, we do also offer a data erasure destruction service. This data destruction solution involves overriding confidential data, but the device can still be updated and used again, unlike shredding which decimates any assets into fragments.
