At California Electronics Recycler we are able destroy data using our degaussing machines to make your data unreadable and untraceable by even the most advanced devices. Our Hard Drive Tape and Media Degaussing technique is compliant for hard drive and digital media destruction.
Your data is destroyed and irrecoverable… PERIOD!
Hard Drive Tape and Media Degaussing is a secure way to destroy data permanently from your digital storage devices. Most all data storage devices use a form of magnetic media, creating very small areas called magnetic domains. Degaussing eliminates and destroys the magnetic field position causing the magnetic domains to be left in random patterns, making data unrecoverable. Typically after degaussing hard drives and disk drives they are no longer usable. Older devices, such as floppy disks, tapes, and video cassettes, may still be re-writable allowing them to be reused and recycled multiple times.
If you desire to have your data storage devices sent through our degaussing machine, you may call us for a Pickup or you can come drop-off your data storage devices at our location in the city of Santa Ana, California. We can help you degauss your devices using one of our safe and secure degaussing machines.
When government data needs to be destroyed there is an added measure to ensure the data is completely irrecoverable. Degaussing of storage media uses a powerful magnetic to destroy any data and make the media unusable. After the device is degaussed we may also destroy the device by means of our 4 ton hydraulic press.
To ensure maximum security and destruction of data it is highly recommended that storage devices are degaussed prior to physical destruction. At California Electronics Recycler we use professional degaussing machines that destroy data quickly and efficiently. After sending your storage devices through our degausser we test them to make sure the data is irretrievable and destroyed. Depending on the level of destruction required we can physically destroy your devices with our 4 ton hydraulic press for maximum security and protection.
