Hard Drive Destruction Beyond Recovery

DDX enables IT Departments, Data Centres and Australian Government Departments across Australia to truly secure redundant hard drives & unwanted electronic devices. Document Dynamix Australia is your first choice for high security hard drive destruction. No longer worry about what to do as your redundant & faulty Hard Drives steadily accumulate, consuming your valuable space.

Why Shredding Is the Only Answer

Without question, secure shredding is the most instant and comprehensive means of physically destroying data held on hard drives. Shredding ensures data contained on hard drives and other data storage devices, can never be recovered again.

How Is This Achieved, So You Can You Be Absolutely Worry Free?

Once shredded, Electronic devices can never be reoperated. Unlike punching or bending, hard drives are instantly and thoroughly destroyed, reduced into many small particles.
Most importantly, once shredded, the physical structure of the platter or chip on SSD hard drives which stores your data is completely secured, altered beyond recovery.

Hard Drive Shredding

Our Industrial Hard Drive Shredders ensures that your hard drive can never be operated again, unlike degaussing which can prove a time consuming and sometimes and unsuccessful process.

As the physical structure and appearance of hard-drives are significantly altered once shredded, total peace of mind is achieved. By comparison, degaussing, punching or bending of hard drives still leaves a question mark as these methods of destruction leave the device in the same or similar in appearance.
