Re: Does anybody know how to fry a hard drive???

well part of me wants to say quart of oil and a 4qt stock pot :) but the easiest wat i think is to put it in a drill press and punch lots o holes in it or if yo ulike shooting guns just using it as a target destroy the platters and destroy the information

electro magnets ;)

even if you took a hammer to it (the photograph with the hard drives that has the nail like indents on it, they could still get mass data off of it, it also looks like you only took care of the top plate) they could still get the data, many corrupt parts, but enough to land someone in jail for what they were trying to hide

Edit:
just because it wont start up, does not mean that you cant get the data

Edit2:
you could bend the heads so instead of read/write it just scratchs
remember that there's usually more then 1 plate

I assume this is a question of how to do this. Google "DBAN"
