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.

Shred-it's 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. Shred-it 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.

** Subject to local availability
