  • 2. Erase and damage the data platters in side the Hard Drive, making it extremely difficult if even possible to retrieve any information after we have done, the platters are an internal component of the Hard Drive that stores your information, we firstly erase the hard drive, then we dismantle the Hard Drive, remove all the internal components, scratch the surface of the platters and then bend and crease the platters so they can't be straightened and won't spin anymore. Making it extremely difficult to get any information from the platters if at all possible. This costs around 10
