Destruction and Sanitization of Data

Data Security

CTL cares about Customer data safety and security. That’s why CTL strongly recommends customers completely wipe data from hard drives prior to sending device to recycling. This step will provide additional assurance that data is properly disposed of. While CTL requests its recycling partners to destroy data on devices received as a critical criteria within the recycling program, taking this additional step is a good best practice.

  2. Press and hold Ctrl + Alt + Shift + r.
  3. Select Restart.
