In the old days when I upgraded the computer I would trash its HDD by
the same method. They're surprisingly tough and a few bashes with a
claw hammer are not enough and a mash hammer is required. On
repeated whacking a fissure would open in the side and then off to the
vice and with a large screwdriver the thing could be prised open, and
inside there's a pretty aluminum (or such) disk with little arms to
read it with. Then back to the claw hammer to bash the platter thing
good 'n proper until its doubled over a few times. Then a final
going over with the mash hammer again. All the bits are thrown into
different dumpsters. One cannot be too careful these days with the
Feds and their fancy forensics.
