Hard Drive Destruction
Why destroy old hard drives?
- Many of the programs available for sanitizing a hard drive do not completely wipe the data from the drive.
- The software used may leave traces of data or just delete the directories leaving whole blocks of information behind.
- If the platter is left in tack that data could be accessed.
- There is also the threat of someone using reconstruction software on your old hard drive–software that will recover and restore any data left behind on a computers hard drive.
