Hard Drive Destruction

What Gets Stolen From Old Hard Drives

Before you throw away, donate or recycle a computer, make sure the hard drive is destroyed. Even programs that tout that they can erase everything on the drive are not hacker-proof. The best way to make sure all of the data on the drive is destroyed is to shred the drive. You might not think that anything important is on the drive, but most people have sensitive information, such as their address, birth date and social security number on the computer. If you paid bills online or accessed bank accounts online, that information is also stored on the hard drive. If you have a business, you have even more on the hard drive: Not just your employees’ info, but you have customer info and trade secrets. Even reformatting the drive is not a secure option. Other than physically destroying the drive, you could degauss it. The degausser machine changes the magnetic properties of the drive and makes it unusable.
