Hard Drive Destruction


Physical destruction is often the most economical means of ensuring data is not remnant on these hard drives before disposing of them.


VH Techworks ensures that physical destruction is accomplished to an extent that precludes any possible further use or data retrieval of the HDDs.The disposal requirement follows NIST SP 800 – 53.


Our process:


– Security, Documentation & Validation

– Destruction

  All drives are feed through our shedder physically destroying the media and any potential for data retrieval.


– Recycling
