Hard Disks Aint all that…

harddiskHard Disks aint all that hard…..
Having replaced the hard disk in my laptop recently, I decided that I would dispose of it appropriately. I remember reading somewhere that taking a hammer to the drive should do the job. But that seemed a little agricultural. So I started to dismantle the outer casing and removed the hard disk platters, which I then though I would render useless by bending or breaking them. One thing that I didn’t expect was that they would shatter so spectacularly, something that I would recommend everyone try at least once. I have to say they are a little different from the Hard Disks that went in the old Olivetti Mainframe machines of yesteryear.
