Title:

THE HARD DRIVE DESTRUCTION PROCESS WHAT THE STEPS ARE AND HOW TO DIY

Description:

"Once you’ve gotten to the platters, use the magnets you removed to do your own degaussing of your hard drive. Run the magnets back and forth over the platters a few times. The magnets are extremely strong, and will wipe any data you have left off. The next step is the best part, and it’s up to you. Now you get to break your hard drive into little pieces. Use a sledgehammer, run it over with a car, it doesn’t matter how you do it, and you can rest easy knowing you properly engaged the hard drive destruction process. This is from an article that appeared on All Green Website: " – PowerPoint PPT presentation

THE HARD DRIVE DESTRUCTION PROCESS WHAT THE
STEPS ARE AND HOW TO DIY
2
It is important that you wipe your hard drive
clean of personal data before dropping it off.
This ensures that your personal information will
not fall into the hands of the wrong person who
could use it illegally.

The Hard Drive Destruction Process at Recycling
Plants
The recycling technicians will separate the hard
drive from the computer.
1
The hard drives non data related items such as
metals or plastics are separated into smaller
parts so that they can be recycled.
2
The hard drive will then be processed with some
type of advanced equipment that reduces the drive
to particles so small that the data is
unrecognizable.

  • DEGAUSSING
  • HARD DRIVE SHREDDING
  • Degausing can be combined with hard drive
    shredding. It is a magnetic process that is
    applied to the hard drives that ensures that all
    of the data will be removed magnetically.

5
The Hard Drive Destruction Process at Home
  • wipe the data off of your hard drive (The best
    program is Dariks Boot and Nuke)
  • Simply boot the CD-ROM, select which wipe method
    you would like, (there are a variety of options
    to choose from) 
  • and let the program run overnight. 

6
The Hard Drive Destruction Process at Home
  • REMOVE ALL OF THE SCREWS ON THE TOP CASING OF THE
    DRIVE
  • REMOVE THE SCREWS THAT ARE AROUND THE OUTSIDE OF
    YOUR DRIVE
  • THEN REMOVE ALL OF THE LABELS AND STICKERS FROM
    THE DRIVE, AND LOOSEN ANY ADDITIONAL SCREWS THAT
    ARE HIDING UNDER THE LABEL. 
  • REMOVE THE TOP MAGNET WITH A SCREWDRIVER AND
    PLIERS

7
The Hard Drive Destruction Process at Home
  • REMOVE THE LOWER MAGNET. YOULL HAVE TO POP THE
    ARRAY ON TOP OF IT, OR IF YOU CANT USE YOUR
    PLIERS TO REMOVE IT
  • REMOVE THE PLATTERS WITH YOUR TORX BITS. UNSCREW
    THE CAP.
  • ONCE YOUVE GOTTEN TO THE PLATTERS, USE THE
    MAGNETS YOU REMOVED TO DO YOUR OWN DEGAUSSING OF
    YOUR HARD DRIVE. 

8
The Hard Drive Destruction Process at Home
  • RUN THE MAGNETS BACK AND FORTH OVER THE PLATTERS
    A FEW TIMES.
  • THE MAGNETS ARE EXTREMELY STRONG, AND WILL WIPE
    ANY DATA YOU HAVE LEFT OFF.
  • NOW YOU GET TO BREAK YOUR HARD DRIVE INTO LITTLE
    PIECES. (USE A SLEDGEHAMMER, RUN IT OVER WITH A
    CAR, IT DOESNT MATTER HOW YOU DO IT)
