June 7, 2013 at 3:41 pm by SEM

When your hard drive reaches the end of its life cycle what do you do with it? Most people know that it needs to be destroyed but what does that mean? Many State, Local Governments and Higher Educational facilities end up stockpiling drives in basements and/or storage closets. Have you ever heard of the statement “out of site out of mind”? So the million dollar question is “How do I destroy my hard drive?”

Hard Drive Crushers

The most popular option for State and Local Governments with low volume is the 0101 Hard Drive Crusher.This is a hydraulic powered crusher that uses a conical punch of force that causes catastrophic trauma by bending and boring a hole through the hard drive chassis while destroying the internal platter. This is typically enough of a security standard for most applications at the State and Local level.


When you think of purchasing a machine to destroy a hard drive you may start to think that it is expensive. That is not the case. For a little over four thousand dollars you can purchase the SEM 0101 Hard Drive Crusher.This option provides you with maximum security because you are destroying the drives in house as opposed to using an outside shred service. This provides both maximum security and is also the best value in hard drive destruction.
