What Happens When My Cloud Files Bulk Import Is Complete?


When the import is complete, you have the option to have your drive shipped back to you or destroyed.

When destroying the drive, we use a machine called a Degaussing Machine. A degaussing machine is a powerful electro-magnet that destroys the data on the platters by magnetizing the device, which changes the magnetic alignment. This realignment leaves the drive with random patterns and no preference to orientation. This makes the data unrecoverable. This service is an additional fee of $15 per device.
