The Dangers of Selling Old Computers VS. Recycling

The Risks of Selling Old Computers

As you know, a computer’s hard drive holds a large amount of personal data or sensitive information – anything from bank statements to client data can be easily found on the hard drive. While many resources say they can clean your hard drive to a like-new state, this may not actually be the case. Even hard drives that have been formatted can still contain residual data which can be easily retrieved. But, if you don’t know what to look for, how do you know they did their job and that your data is truly removed? Because of the risks associated with hard drives containing sensitive or proprietary data, it is ideal to recycle your unwanted computers and laptops. The professionals of ProTek Recycling can guarantee the destruction of your data.  In the end, this is a better solution for business owners rather than putting their proprietary information at risk.

ProTek Recycling offers data destruction options that will fit the needs of your business while also making decisions that are environmentally responsible. While working with our professionals, we want you to know what is happening with your data-containing devices and how we’re eliminating environmental risks in addition to securely destructing your data.
