NFA Hard drive "wipe"

I got a new computer at work this week. My old computer had dual hard drives that needed to be "wiped" and disposed of properly. I also had a drive from an older computer that also needed a proper data dump. Somehow, suppressed 300BLK rounds just seemed like the appropriate IT solution. I don't think that anyone will be getting anything off of these hard drives.

Fun, but not an NSA approved method.

Get the drill press out. Each drive should have 5 holes in it.

Take the media out of its protective case and use sandpaper to remove the recording surface.

I think there's a WAY more entertaining way to put four more holes in each of those.

I've got almost 200 drives that need the same treatment, just haven't found the right place/time!

Modern drives are bullet resistant.

Try smashing one with a sledge hammer. The platter is pretty thick.

Where you see projectiles passing through is where the circuit card is, leaving the data to be extracted from the platter by a nefarious actor. Which is why 5 holes is recommended, at least 2 will hit the platter.

At 2,000 FPS, these rounds went through pretty clean with a big exit wounds. I'm good at this point sending these off to the landfill. I'll take my chances with the bad guys (who years from now might be digging in a landfill) being able to get any of my info off these bullet mangled drives.
