Shredding your hard drive may seem like an odd thing to do. Most people think if you wipe a hard drive all the contents are gone, but that isn’t true. According to, “You can delete or format an external or internal hard drive, but deleting everything doesn’t erase hard drive and formatting also does not erase data.”

So how do you get rid of your data? How do you stay completely safe and secure with your confidential information? Simple… you have to dispose of the drive. No — not just throw it in the trash, but actually shred it!
