How would you destroy a hard drive? (Your imagination needed) - May 28, 2009, 09:20 AM

We have 200 hard drives to get rid of, and we though of taking them to the shooting range, renting a wood chipper, and getting some thermite.

Anybody else have ideas?

Gun range would be fun.

We had a bunch to destory at one point and made the workstation techs take them apart, but it wasn't 200.

Now we have to have them destoryed and prove that they were destoryed. I think the last time we used Iron Mountain.

Thermite would work, as would a high powered magnet to demagnetize them. You'd have to destroy the actual drive and not just the case because it might be recoverable. Remember that scene in Fight Club where they take magnets to all the tapes? Same concept. Stuff is still recoverable after a fire, plenty of high-end companies that do HD recovery for business fires.

Your not working for Al-Quada or Halliburton or anything like that right?

Don't try magnets.

My old firm used Shred-it, they actually came out and shredded the drives for us.

Wood chipper would work too.

Wipe with a software utility, degausse (contract it out), then smash/shoot/stomp it to bits, destroying the platters is most important.
