[Micronet] Hard drive destroyer

Bruce Satow
Is there a place on campus that has a machine that chops up hard drives into bits?

The data center has a magnetic machine (or two) that wipes data off of drives. If you want to physically destroy them, you can try compax.com which has been mentioned on micronet before.

If you dispose of them via campus recycling, they are shredded. According to Eric Anglim:

"Our contract with our electronic recycler calls for them to shred all hard drives we send, either those already pulled out of systems, or for them to pull hard drives out of CPUs or copier/printers and shred them."

Re: [Micronet] Hard drive destroyer

Kevin Burney

I’d recommend wiping disks before of disposing.  It is very quick and easy to use a magnetic tool before throwing it in the recycle bin.  The drive may get “lost” in transit before getting to Excess and Salvage.

My understanding, based on information I got some time ago, was that it was up to us to wipe any hard drives that were sent to Excess & Salvage (whether in or out of computers), else they would charge us to wipe/destroy them.

Campus Recycling is different from Excess and Salvage.

Power drill and bit do a pretty good job when used 2 or 3 times a drive!  You can even remove the magnets in the hdd to catch the metal burs that come off.
