I had to ensure a client's hard drive data was unrecoverable - I think I succeeded, no?

I have a similar process for HDD destruction and I find the process most therapeutic. :)

Plus - The strong magnets that I recover from old HDD are useful for all sorts of things.

I can still see some data on track 68 :) My preferred method is: Safety goggles on, remove top lid of drive, connect to external drive PSU, spin drive up, attack with chisel/sharp implement and scrape the coating off. For multi-platter drives, it's a little more work, but still quite fun :)
