Hard Drive Shredding
Here at Mamoth, our media and hard drive shredding service is designed to provide you with the ultimate peace of mind when disposing of your sensitive data.
What is Hard Drive Shredding?
Hard drive shredding involves physically destroying a hard drive by shredding it into tiny pieces using industrial-grade shredders. The process ensures that the data on the hard drive is completely destroyed and irretrievable.

What is Media Shredding?
To ensure their data is entirely irretrievable, media shredding physically destroys electronic media, such as hard drives, magnetic tapes, and optical disks. The process involves using a shredder that tears the media into small pieces or shreds. The shreds are then recycled or disposed of securely.
A Secure Method of Data Destruction
While software-based data-wiping techniques can be effective in erasing data, there is still a possibility that the data can be recovered using advanced techniques. Hard drive shredding provides a more secure data destruction method by rendering the hard drive unusable and destroying any physical storage media.
Compliant with Data Protection Regulations
Hard drive shredding is often recommended for organizations and individuals who deal with highly sensitive data, such as financial institutions, healthcare providers, government agencies, and legal firms. It is also a preferred method for businesses that must comply with data protection regulations such as HIPAA, FACTA, and GDPR.
Do You Need to Degauss a Hard Drive Before Shredding?
No, you do not have to degauss a hard drive before shredding it. Degaussing is a data sanitization method that uses a strong magnetic field to erase data from a hard drive. However, if the hard drive is going to be shredded, degaussing is optional as the shredding process will physically destroy the hard drive and render it unusable.
Degaussing is often used as an alternative to hard drive shredding when the hard drive is reused or resold. In such cases, degaussing can be an effective method of securely erasing data from the hard drive without physically destroying it. However, hard drive shredding is a more secure data destruction method if the hard drive is no longer needed and will be disposed of.
At Mamoth, we offer both degaussing and hard drive shredding services to provide our clients with a range of options for data sanitization. Our team can help you determine the most appropriate method for your specific needs.
Can Be Done On-Site or Off-Site
Media shredding can be done on-site or off-site, depending on the organization’s needs and the required security level. On-site shredding involves bringing the shredder to the organization’s location, while off-site shredding involves transporting the media to a secure facility for shredding.
