Backup and delete your data
You may be wondering, ‘what is a hard drive?’. The hard drive is where all of your pictures, music and documents are stored in your computer. R4 Services recommends that you backup and delete all your personal data on your hard drive before bringing it in for destruction.
After deleting all your data on the hard drive, it’s unlikely for someone to recover your data. However, wiping that data is wise precautionary step before destroying the hard drive. Once your files are backed up and the data on the hard drive is deleted, you can contact R4 Services to take care of the rest.
R4 is equipped to destroy all types of media: including tapes of all sizes, disks, cartridges, x-rays, hard drives, monitors and film. Your sensitive items will be protected and secured from pick-up to destruction. A certificate of destruction confirms that all materials have in fact been destroyed. Because hard drives often contain certain metals that may be harmful to the environment, R4 Services will properly recycle the components of your hard drive after destruction.
