With our Data Destruction service we can safely and securely perform digital media data erasing services and physical destruction services for hard drives, solid state media, thumb drives, tapes and even cellular phones.
When you format a hard drive, thumb drive, or flash memory, you don't actually erase the data from the hard drive or other digital media, you only erase the location information for the data, making it "lost" to the operating system. Since the operating system can't see the data, the drive looks empty when you look at its contents. However, all the data is still there and, unless you truly erase the hard drive, can be recovered using special software or hardware.
» Why do I care? - you would ask
The most responsible thing you can do before recycling a computer, digital camera, hard drive, or even disposing of one, is to completely erase your digital media before getting rid of it.
If you don't completely erase (destroy) the data from your digital media, you risk exposing sensitive personal data that you previously deleted - data like social security numbers, account numbers, passwords, pictures, videos, etc.
For example: You donated a computer or digital camera to deduct some income tax at the end of a year, or you sold it online... Someone would bring your hard drive or thumb drive or any other media to us (or any other data recovery company), data was recovered, paid for and given to the customer who requested recovery. What's next? Your data is exposed... Why risk it?
We would be happy to perform data destruction service when you bring your media to our shop.
We would be happy to send one of our expert technicians to your home or office for media pick-up if you do not know how to take it out from your PC, server, or any other electronic equipment that has faulty media in.
Our knowledge in hard drive and solid state data recovery engineering will insure your data is not coming back. Rendering the media devise cleaned or physically destroyed keeps you safe and secure which is our number one priority.
