I just had to destroy a hard disk at work, so I decided scratching would be a viable option. So I got out a screw driver and started scratching. I think I did it a bit too hard, as this happened...

I am so f**king glad that didn't happen while it was spinning...

What's all the fuss about? It looks fine to me. A bit of glue and tape, and it'll be just like new ... :D :P

Well it was a dead disk anyway, head crash, and the client didn't have anything on it he wanted to keep.

A friend of mine pointed out it was a film coated glass disk, something I didn't even know existed. Thats what it smashed so easily.

I'm guessing that's why I don't live near Compact-Mac, nor am I on his enemies list. (At least I hope not) :P
