Even the government uses furnaces to destroy their hard drives after they have outlived their usefulness. I suggest if you have something to hide, to do the same, burn the thing. Hard drives are cheap these days. Destroying one and getting another is not a problem with even a meager amount of income.

I just saw this on TheScreenSavers on TechTV. A good way to totally get rig off stuff is to reformat or use Autoclave. Autoclave is a bottable floppy that TOTALLY erases it. Even the FBI and the CIA cant retrieve it. And a great (and fun) to destroy the HDD physically is to take some Thermite and rig some of it right about the HDDs in the computer. then flip some switches. In under a minute the whole PC will be up in huge flames. Thermite burns at 3000F. That will detroy ALL the data.
