Hard drives and other data carriers are subject to a natural decay. Memory errors increase over time, depending on how intensively the equipment is used. So it makes sense to monitor hard drives and replace them if you suspect they are damaged. Even if you have your old hardware refurbished, not all hard drives can be reused. So what should you do with hard drives when they come to the end of their lives?
Professional disposal of your old hard drives
Even old and possibly defective hard drives contain important corporate data, which may reveal information about your company if they are not disposed of properly. What’s more, strict security standards may require the destruction of data carriers. If a hard drive cannot be reused, or if it is just broken, then shredding this data carrier is a secure solution.
