How Does Hard Drive Destruction Services Work
Hard drives are electronic storage devices that store a tremendous amount of information. Deleting information on your computer does not remove the data from your hard drive. The only way to be sure the information cannot be accessed is to destroy each hard drive physically. FileShred will come to your location and shred or crush your hard drives so the data can never be used again. After your hard drives have been destroyed, we will provide you with a certificate of destruction listing each hard drive by serial number. We will also remove the destroyed hard drives and the remnants of hard drives will be recycled.

Different Types of Hard Drives Require Different Destruction Methods
Hard Disk Drive (HDD)
An HDD has rotating platters with magnetic heads arranged on a moving actuator arm, which reads and writes data to the platters. Hard disk drives retain stored data even when the device is powered off. These hard drives can be shredded or crushed so that the platters are destroyed making it impossible to retrieve data.
Solid State Drive (SSD)
Solid state drives store data in flash memory chips which allows for no moving parts. They are smaller, more durable, use less energy, and are cooler than traditional drives. Solid-state drives typically store more data than hard disk drives. Because of the small memory chips, they must be shredded by a special shredder that cuts them up into smaller pieces than a standard commercial shredder.
FileShred’s mobile units are equipped with hard drive shredders for both HHD and SSD hard drives.
