PITS Global Data Recovery Services provides secure and professional data destruction services for businesses and individual users across the US. Our data recovery engineers can overwrite your data, destroy read/write heads, and permanently damage the magnetic field that stores files inside of the device.

Data erasure is a helpful solution for those who want to erase their data for good. Using this method, people destroy their data stored on hard drives, tapes, flash drives, and other storage devices.

But why do we need to destroy data if we can simply delete it? Emptying the recycle bin is not enough; the data is still there. There is a bright side—you can recover your accidentally deleted files. But from the other point of view, if you need to destroy your files completely, you need to request drive destruction services. 

Data Destruction Solutions

When you delete data from your laptop, computer, or smartphone, it is still on your device. When you write new data over the old one, it gets partially or fully overwritten. This can be comparable to trying to erase something written with a pen on paper.

Erasing pen writing is impossible. You can either take your text into brackets so the reader understands that this part is unnecessary or ink it over so that no one ever sees it. You can destroy data in a few different ways depending on the type and number of the devices. People usually attempt to erase their data with data-erasing software. But still, it does guarantee that the information will become inaccessible.

According to statistics, less than 50% of data destruction software can completely erase data from the device. And unfortunately, to ensure that data was erased, you still need the help of professional service. Our company’s experienced engineers destroy sensitive data using three different methods. Each method is useful for a unique situation depending on the number of devices and their type.

Hard Disk Drive Recovery


Overwriting (also called data wiping) is writing new data on top of old. In most situations, overwriting data once is enough. Still, we prefer to wipe data several times for the best results.

Using this method, you can destroy your data without damaging the storage device. It is a great option if you want to continue using the device after data destruction. 

On the other hand, if you want to overwrite an entire high-capacity drive, this solution might take longer than the others. Besides, this method won’t work with a damaged or still writable hard drive. Trying to overwrite data alone can leave gaps in inaccessible areas such as host-protected regions, requiring professional data erasure service.


Another method is to degauss hard drives, tapes, and other data storage devices.

As you might have known, hard drives use magnetic technology to store data. So, in order to destroy data, you can just degauss the device. Degaussing is the process of interrupting the magnetic structure of the storage device and destroying the data.

The advantage of such a method is its speed. Degaussing can effectively and very quickly purge an entire medium of storage media. This solution can be applied only to magnetic storage devices such as hard disks or magnetic tape. 

Data Destruction Services

Unfortunately, if you are planning to use the media after data destruction, this method is not for you. It destroys magnetic mechanisms, making the device non-functional. In addition, degaussing destroys data only from magnetic media, which means that it cannot eradicate files from devices such as solid-state drives.

Physical Damage

If you no longer use the device and only need to erase data for good, physical destruction can be a great option. We can destroy your data in several ways using this method, including drilling, drive shredding service, chemical melting, and other techniques that render physical data storage media unreadable.

Crashed Hard Drive Recovery

Still, sometimes data can be recovered with forensic methods in such cases. This is why we mostly prefer pulverizing the disk to particles when physically destroying the media. This ensures the data is irrecoverable.  

All of these methods are effective in destroying data for good, but only if you trust it to experts. Destroying data by yourself can still leave some files recoverable. 

Our team can destroy your data securely and test each deleted device for recoverability. We examine each device until there is no data left to be recovered and that it is unusable. For more information about our media disposal and data destruction solutions, call our data centre or submit a request form. Our responsive customer service team will get back to you in a few minutes.

PITS Global Data Recovery Services provided outstanding service when my SSD became corrupted. The technical team was patient and supportive, making sure I understood the recovery process. They had ... previously mentioned a verification session, and when it came to my turn, I was pleasantly surprised. Instead of just receiving screenshots of my files, I was able to connect to their server, see all of my data, and interact with it—opening files, scrolling, and controlling the screen. I don’t know of any other company that does this, but it was such a relief to see everything there and to be able to check each file myself. This is truly a five-star company!

After reading so many positive reviews about PITS, I decided to give them a shot. The experience truly was one of the best. They provided me with the evaluation results, and I chose the first ... turnaround time option since it wasn’t an emergency. However, they recovered the data a few days before the deadline, and we had a verification session on the same day to check the files. Everything I previously had on my SSD was fully recovered. Thank you, PITS, and blessings for everything you have done

I couldn't find a professional data recovery company before I contacted PITS. My mom has saved up all of her data on 1TB LaCie HDD but couldn't get access to any of the stored files anymore. So I took ... the responsibility, and started searching up for data recovery companies. The previous companies couldn't save anything from the drive but PITS Global, got back to me with 100% of the data. That's why from my point of view, they are the real ones in their field
