It needs to shred some memories."

Shouldn't you keep those for memories and for use as reference when making new games? Like a feature that you think was awesome but got cut due to disk space or not enough time to test/implement it.

they probably have a lot of it copied onto computers

They have plenty of backups of the sources throughout the process. Backup disks, tapes, and source control systems.

The disks were just different benchmarks along the way that they could insert into the dev machines for testers.

They could make another copy of any of those disks at any time they wanted. They are just destroying them so that they don't get leaked.
