What do you do with your old tech? We bet most people either stuff it in drawers or put their old computers in the attic. There are a few reasons for this and one of them is that we don’t trust technology. It’s true, we’re not convinced that when we delete information it’s really gone. If you have this worry you’re not alone and you’re not wrong. Data does still exist on a drive even when files have been deleted.
If that’s the reason why you’re holding onto your tech there’s a simple solution. You can get a data shredder online. This is a piece of software that doesn’t just delete a file. It does digitally shred the data making it close to impossible to put back together. It would be like sifting through millions of pieces of paper. While it can be done, no one is going to bother to get your old family photos.
Or alternatively, you can think about destroying the hard drive. Once you do this, the data really is gone for food. The only way to do this is to smash it with a hammer or cut it to pieces.
Then again, maybe the reason you can’t get rid of your tech is because you don’t know how. There are a lot of people that have no idea how to go about recycling, computers, phones and tablets. If you have this issue you’re in look. The infographic below has all the advice that you need to make sure you can get rid of your tech without any delay and clear your home out of useless junk.
