Frequently Asked Questions

Hard drives store data on metal disks called platters. To ensure data is unrecoverable, these platters need to be destroyed. Hard drive destruction typically involves two methods that permanently destroy platters:

  • Shearing - An industrial shredder cuts the platter into small pieces or strips to ensure it cannot be placed back together.
  • Crushing - In this process, a large hole is punched through the platter. This results in the magnetic surface rippling and deforming, so data is unrecoverable.
