    What is Data Destruction?

    Everything that you do on a computer is recorded, and documents and other information is stored on the hard drive. Even if you erase the data, the information can potentially be recaptured by someone using certain software. To combat this, you have to use proper data destruction protocols, like the Department of Defense protocol.

    During this process, the hard drive goes through three wipes, with software verifying each one. This ensure all information contained on the hard drive is erased, written over or altered in a manner that makes recovery impossible. It's very secure but costs more than physical data destruction, one of our more cost-effective methods.

    There are some instances in which trace data might remain on the hard drive after the wiping process. While that is rare, it is imperative to ensure the data on the hard drive doesn't fall into the wrong hands. If the data can't be removed using the DOD wiping process, the hard drive has to be physically destroyed to achieve complete destruction.

    How Much Does Data Destruction Cost?

    The cost of data destruction varies greatly depending on the size of the job and other factors. Ensuring that the data on every drive presented is destroyed takes considerable time. Larger drives take longer to go through the wiping process. Even seemingly small increases in wiping time can add up quickly when you consider that each drive will go through three wipes before the process is completed. You also have to add the time it takes to verify that the drive is clean.

    Because of the time it takes for each wipe, data destruction can be expensive. Generally, you can spend $7 to $12 per drive to have the data destroyed if you opt to use the DOD wiping method. In comparison, destroying the hard drive with a physical destruction technique is much cheaper.

    In some cases, discounts are possible. If you have a large data destruction project that needs to be completed, a discount is possible. Keeping your personal records and business records safe is critical. DOD data destruction ensures that your hard drives are left in a like-new condition and if necessary, physically destroyed so no information can be accessed.

    Been working with R.A.K.I for over ten years now. After working with multiple recyclers, they have been the best by far. They take care of all our disposal needs and also do the destruction of our hard drives. They have always met our needs, whatever they may be.
