Have you ever asked about these questions?
How to destroy SSD? How do you destroy hard drive data? Or how to destroy cell phone data? If you are looking for a solution to destroy your data permanently, this is it. In our previous blog, we had covered degaussing and crushing services. In this blog, we are going to discuss the Shredding service.
Nowadays, people are aware of data privacy. We tense to keep our broken storage devices such as hard drives, SSD, or cell phones as we are worrying that personal data might fall into the wrong hand.
Why does data destruction separate into different methods instead of only 1 solution? Different types of storage media use different concepts to save information, and this is a factor to determine which method to use. For instance, a hard disk drive (HDD) is storing data magnetically. Conversely, for SSD, data is stored in a NAND flash chip, which does not have any magnetic field in it.
Shredding Service vs Degaussing Service
For shredding service, it can apply to any kind of storage device such as HDD, SSD, mobile phones, and many more. Unlike degaussing service, although it can destroy the data stored on all types of magnetic storage, it does not destroy the data stored in the NAND flash chip. For HDD, you may apply both methods to ensure the data destroy completely, but not applicable to storage media which stored data using a NAND flash chip.
Shredding Service vs Crushing Service
Crushing service is using an external force to bend, break, and mangles hard drives. At the end of this service, you can still see your hard drive physically. As for shredding services, instead of applying an external force, the storage device will be destroyed by turning them into small pieces in large quantities instead of one by one.
A larger shredder machine can destroy up to a few thousand storage drives per hour. Apart from that, a shredder machine can operate continuously for a long period. If the device that you hope to destroy is not magnetic storage and there is a large number of drives, shredding service is a choice for you.
