Hard Drive Destruction

There are many different ways of destroying a hard drive and the data on the device. It depends on whether you wish to reuse the disks again or whether you want them physically destroyed? Safe PC Disposal offers a choice of methods for hard drive destruction – wiping or physical destruction. We can help you decide upon the most suitable destruction method for your specific needs and if you need it at your site.

We are now providing destruction services for SSD – Solid State Drives as they break or become obsolete.

Each process involves a secure collection, using our fully trained staff, in our own GPS tracked vehicles. Then once the device enters our authorized treatment facility, it is scanned into our system and the hard drive destroyed. We then issue a certificate of destruction which can detail individual serial numbers and manufacturer details if required. The destroyed hard drives are then recycled to recover the materials that they are made from

Media Tape Destruction and Server Tape Destruction

Media tape destruction must be performed on any redundant or faulty backup media tapes and server tapes. Whilst tapes provide a good disaster recovery solution by storing company data, disposing of them incorrectly is a disaster waiting to happen. As with hard drives, media tapes are usually magnetic storage devices, so our technicians have the option of either degaussing or destroying them to ensure that the media tape destruction and server tape destruction is thorough and that data is completely irretrievable.

Once the media tape destruction has taken place, a destruction certificate is produced and the tapes are then granulated for plastic recycling.
