Destroy Hard Drive
Removing all of the data on your hard drive can be extremely important, especially if you have confidential or personal data that you do not want to be accessible. Simply formatting a hard drive will not completely destroy it. To be sure that your data has been erased properly, you can destroy your hard drive with a magnet. A hard drive has three major components, including a magnetic platter that stores data on the hard drive. By compromising the magnetic platter with a strong magnet, you can destroy the data stored on the platter.
