Hard Drive Destruction Service
ETS staff at North Hall Data Center (NHDC) will take custody of hard drives that UCSB customers wish to have destroyed and securely destroy them. ETS uses a NSA/DoD rated degausser (SEM EMP 1000) and hole punch (SEM Model-0101) to securely wipe data and destroy the drive. ETS will dispose of, or recycle, the drive remnants. We will provide to you a chain of custody / destruction record reporting drive make/model, serial number and date of destruction for your records.
