Almost untraceable, hidden pieces of data still exist when companies dispose of old or outdated data storage devices – even those their IT departments have supposedly wiped clean. However, just like washing a window with cleaner sometimes leaves a smudge or smear behind, trace amounts of data can remain on these devices. Those trace amounts could cost your company millions of dollars if they are the right bits of data.
What’s on that old hard drive, anyway?
When we’re through with it, no one will ever know. After destroying the hard drive or other media, the material is recycled at a separation and smelting facility, allowing the precious metals and other valuable materials to be reclaimed – keeping toxins out of landfills and water supplies
