Don’t stockpile hard drives

Some businesses don’t have a hard-drive destruction policy. Even if hard drives are stored in a locked area, if the information is still intact there’s a chance that it could be accessed.

Don’t perform DIY destruction

Venting all your frustration on your hard drive with a hammer might help you feel better and it might even work theoretically to destroy it enough, but there’s no guarantee.

A professional business should really be disposing of documents, data and hard drives securely and compliantly. Using Restore Datashred, a professional destruction company, will ensure that you’re given a Certificate of Media Destruction for your own records.

It’s just one of the reasons why using a fully-accredited data destruction company is the safest and easiest way to ensure that you are disposing of data securely. You can be confident that no data is retrievable after the hard drives have been destroyed.

Restore Datashred Hard Drive Shredding

How do I ensure I dispose of my hard drives correctly?

A very effective way of disposing of hard drives is having Restore Datashred physically shred them.

Our step-by-step guide explains exactly how we carry out this process:

  • Call one of our professional team to discuss how we can assist with your hard drive destruction.
  • Restore Datashred now have a number of mobile shredding vehicles with hard drive shredders on-board, allowing us to offer a national service for hard drive shredding.
  • Our fleet of mobile shredders can process up to 20 hard drives per minute, ensuring your data is permanently destroyed.
  • In order for a hard drive to be destroyed, it must be removed from either the PC or server in which it is housed and any additional protective casing.
  • All hard drives will be destroyed onsite in one of our state-of-the-art mobile shredding vehicles.
  • Secure Collection Operatives also have the ability to produce a collection report containing the serial numbers scanned from the hard drives.
  • Once destroyed, the material will be brought back to a Datashred depot and disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.

Salvation Army

Previous arrangements were unreliable and irregular. Sacks were used for storage and collection. Mindful of both security and manual handling regulations, we recommended a range of lockable bins.
