Old Hard Drives

Ever wonder what to do once your hard drive dies? Some may say the best thing is to just throw it away. Others say, wiped the data clean then throw it away. Well, I say don't do either of those things, because no matter what method you use to wipe your hard drive, the information will still be there. What you want to do is grind that drive to a pulp. Open it up and take out the CD. Then break it in any way you wish. You want that disk so broken that even the world's greatest puzzle solvers can't put it together. The reason for this, in case you are wondering, is that once you burn information to a HDD, it is never fully gone, no matter what you do. So if you are doing loads of tax work on your HDD, that will be saved. This is why you don't want to just toss away your drive. Although wiping it does delete most of the information, it is still there, just a little harder to get to. For this reason, it best to have some fun and destroy your dead hard drive any way you wish.
