HARD DRIVE SHREDDING
Complete destruction to give you confidence in maintaining your privacy
Hard drives contain enormous amounts of private information that simply deleting the file does not remove.
Keeping hard drives forever is unrealistic. Data breaches suck.
The truth is, you shouldn’t have to be concerned about protecting your privacy or suffering data breaches from improperly discarded hard drives.
Prevent data breaches and have peace of mind and confidence in maintaining your privacy with certified hard drive shredding.

How It Works
What others have said of their experience
You may be legally required to destroy your hard drive
There are laws that require you to prevent unauthorized access to personal information. Computers do not last and have to be replaced. Before you send off the old one…wait! This is also true for copy machines as many have a hard drive built in. It is also true for mobile phones, PDA’s, USB drives, and other electronic storage devices.
Your information is still on the old hard drive. Deleting files and/or formatting the hard drive does NOT remove the information. In order to keep that information getting out you need to destroy the hard drive.
