Destroy Your Data: 3 Ways to Go In for the Kill (Video)

We’ve talked a lot about storing and saving your data on, but what if you want to get rid of it for good? For whatever reason, you want to make sure this data doesn’t end up in anyone else’s hands, and want to delete it once and for all. In this video below from Business on Main, Paul Hochman shows three ways businesses can wipe hard drives clean, or get rid of them for good.

Destroying a hard drive is the only 100 percent way to ensure that the data is gone, but getting rid of the hard drive isn’t always the best option, especially if we’d like to use that hard drive again for something else. The video from Paul Hochman showcases more options than hard drive destruction (and no, he doesn’t show you how to do it with power tools).
