Why Shred or Destroy Your Hard Drives?
You probably think that “deleting” a file will do the job. However, this is actually not the case. Although you or common people will probably be unable to recover deleted files, criminals of today are very tech-savvy. They have devised ingenious ways to recover these files. After all, a “deleted” file is not completely erased. It is only tagged as additional storage space for future use. In fact, forensic investigators have special techniques to recover deleted files from computers, gadgets and other technology.
With identity theft and fraud plaguing every corner of the globe, it is essential for every individual, family or business to practice proper disposal of hard drives and similar items that contain personal or private information, because if these land on the wrong hands, it can destroy lives. Criminals will not hesitate to take advantage of easy and illegal ways of making money. So whenever you have old or defective computers to dispose of, make sure that the hard drives are properly and securely destroyed.
At Houston Hard Drive Shredding, we do not simply “wipe” or “delete”, we physically destroy hard drives so that your data will be deemed irretrievable.
Are there Alternative Methods?
There are several ways to “delete” data from hard drives and similar devices. These include magnetic destruction (degaussing), as well as use of software and over-writing. However, these methods are time consuming, expensive and risky. Unlike shredding or physical destruction, these alternative methods leave no trace or evidence; thus, providing opportunity for temptation by less than trustworthy service providers. Also, degaussing and use of software are only applicable for functional hard drives. The actual shredding of the hard drive provides verifiable physical evidence of destruction.
