Secure data destruction
Computer data is stored on a hard drive or solid state drive. Hard drives store the data on a magnetic disc called a platen and solid state drives store the data electronically. Both kinds of storage device are designed to be very robust and to keep your data safe from loss. Obviously, while you are using the drive in your computer, this is what you need, but when the time comes to dispose of it, you want to be sure the data has been removed. Perhaps you have bought a new computer and want to give the old one to a relative or to a friend. Perhaps you have upgraded your computer with a new drive and are wondering what to do with the old drive. However you come to have a spare drive, your precious and probably confidential data will still be perfectly readable on your old drive, even if you have deleted it.
To ensure no-one else can read your data, you need to be sure the data has been completely wiped. We can remove all the data from a drive with secure data deletion to government security standards. We carry out the secure data wipe where you can see us doing it, on your site. We don't remove the drive from site so there is no chance of it getting lost and falling into the hands of someone who should not have it. Once your drive has been securely wiped, you can safely give it to a friend or charity, or dispose of it at your local council recycling collection point for waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), secure in the knowledge that whatever happens to it, your data has been safely destroyed.
