How to destroy a hard drive.
Shred-it's destruction machines (hydraulic crusher or shredder) 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 two options for permanent hard drive destruction:
