With help from Marc, Dan and Lee, I learned a really bad – albeit effective – way to format a hard drive yesterday:
It turns out that:
- It’s a lot easier than you’d expect to snap hard disks.
- They break into many, many little pieces that fly everywhere.
- And the pieces are extremely sharp.
If you’re wondering whether we take our data security seriously, yes, we do. That’s my personal blood on the disc pieces and the desk.
I don’t recommend trying this.
