I like this method of ensuring my data does not fall into the wrong hands when passing on an old pc.

Well thats a cracker.I wonder if I could try that with my paper shredder.

I find that a sledgehammer gives a much more satisfying feeling.

Where's the safety guard? That would make equally quick work of a pair of hands...

Put a paper shredder into that an' you'll need to call superpspershredderrepairman.

Or even a superpapershredderrepairman.

Of course the man operating the machine checks all disks for valuable data before shredding.

We considered an online shredder to be connected to the back of the printer :-)

Hard Drive is taken out & either re-used or hit with a 10lb lump hammer!
This method works well!

Do you think clicking Microsoft's wonderful "restore" program would put it back to its previous condition for me just in case there was something on the disk I needed?
