Physical HDD destruction
Good day Everyone,
Here at Armstrong, we have a couple hundred hard drives that we have to physically disable/destroy. We also have about 200 hard drives per year that our desktop support staff recover from old machines that need to be destroyed as well. We have seen some of the hydraulic electric presses that are enclosed as well as manual presses that are made for this type of work. What are other institutions using to destroy HDDs securely and safely?
